From the beginning, the world was a place of inequality. However, it is possible to change. Through hard work from significant individuals, the world has fought wars and created laws that have led towards equality. The world has developed in many areas such as in gender, sexual, and racial rights. Shirley Chisholm stands as one of these individuals in history that has paved a path to equality. Her Presidential bid, delivered on January 25, 1972, is one moment cemented in history. This paper will analyze that speech by examining her pathos, logos, and ethos.

Susan B. Anthony was one of the biggest leaders of the women’s rights movement because many men during the 19th century believed that women were not strong or smart enough to vote in government elections which is why women were not granted suffrage until August 18th, 1920. In Anthony’s speech that she gave in 1872, after being accused of voting in the presidential election, she argues that all of American citizens should have the right to vote and not just the white man. Anthony’s speech made several logical, ethical and emotional appeals which is what made her empowering and memorable speech set the tone for the women’s rights movement for decades to come.

For a very long time, the voting rights of the citizens have been a problem in the US. It started out with only men with land being able to vote, and then expanded to white men, and then to all men. However, women were never in the situation, they were disregarded and believed to not be worthy enough to have the same rights as men. They were essentially being treated as property, therefore having no rights. But, in Susan B. Anthony’s speech, she hits upon the point that women are just as righteous as men. Susan B. Anthony was an American social reformer and women 's rights activist, and in 1872 was arrested because she tried to vote and express her opinion in the presidential election. However, her decision was reasonable and she should not
Imagine trying to speak up for your rights but nobody is listening. Just like when you answer your hand to answer a question but then you got that answer wrong. You try to play it off and you not raise your hand anymore because you're scared of getting it wrong again.

Rosa Parks’s influence on the fight for equality was arguably the most impactful of all the leaders in the Civil Rights Movement. Rosa Parks first embarked on her Civil Rights journey by becoming involved with the NAACP. The author of the History website page on Rosa Parks claims, “in December 1943 Rosa also joined the Montgomery chapter of the NAACP, and she became chapter secretary” (Rosa Parks). Rosa started out as a follower, but became dedicated to the organization so she ran for a board position. About ten years later, the famous Rosa Parks story took place in Montgomery. The author of the Rosa Parks page emphasizes that, “By refusing to give up her seat to a white man on a Montgomery, Alabama, city bus in 1955, black seamstress Rosa Parks (1913—2005) helped initiate the civil rights movement in the United States” (Rosa Parks). Simply put, Rosa inspired the rest of the African American communities around the United States to protest through boycotts whenever they had the chance to do so. Determined to get the bus segregation law overturned, Parks and her fellow NAACP
Oprah Winfrey uses her Cecil B de Mille acceptance speech to cast light on societal issues of corruption, discrimination, objectification, and racism. Oprah’s speech reflects an age and dialogue of constant controversy and arguable division surrounding allegations of sexual assault, mistreatment, and the seemingly unthinkable idea of an underlying patriarchy within the film industry. Oprah explores and conveys these ideas through the use of various persuasive linguistic and oratorical techniques. This is seen through her use of ethos and pathos when creating an emphatic delivery and appealing to the emotions of the audience when utilising anecdotes. This is also further seen through her repetition of female pronouns when persuading the audience
I am going to tell you about an enchanting story about a woman named Rosa Parks and her mongomery, bus boycott. Rosa Parks was born on February 4,1913 in Tuskegee Alabama U.S.A she died on October 24,2005 [age 92] in Detroit, Michigan U.S. before she got arrested for boycotting a montgomery bus Rosa Parks went to school like a normal child.

When Rosa Parks got an arrest, it had started a resolution. When Rosa didn't get up from her seat for a white man, the driver called the police and arrested her. So at her court date, the African Americans had started a boycott. The Africans have to seat in the back of the bus in the colored section. Because Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat to a white man; she started a revolution and the fight for equal rights for black people.
“Each person must live their life as a model for others”. This quote was said by Rosa Parks, she was a great role model for many people. Although all Rosa Parks did was just refuse to give up her seat, that made a huge impact in the world during that time. She is mainly known for what occurred on December 1, 1955 which was that she refused to give up her seat on the bus in Montgomery, Alabama. After that passed, civil rights movement began. Rosa Parks childhood was around the segregation of African Americans and whites. Her parents got separated and got raised by her mother and moved to Pine Level, Alabama, which is where she attended elementary. For high school she attended a laboratory school. Her motivation was what she had to go through as a young child and she wanted to make the world a better place. She accomplished plenty of things,civil rights marches and also with the help of Martin Luther King there was equal rights for african americans and whites. The world has made Rosa Parks a notable choice because she has influenced a lot of people in a good way. Since then there has been big improvements on the racism issue between white and african american people.

Who in america has not heard about the story of Rosa Parks? Well, the story of Rosa Parks all started when she stepped on the bus and sat down in one of the ten seats. Rosa was not aware that the bus is allowed to have the black and whites separated. You would have thought she would have been aware of not being allowed to sit there. Rosa Parks did not know that she would get arrested and go to jail and have to face court punishments, not only did she have to go to court but she was being sent to prison for not getting up for the white man. Rosa Parks was also a member of the (NAACP), which stands for National Association of the Advancement of Colored People.

The women I would like to recognize is Rosa Parks. She is valuable women in history for many reasons such as her courage, standing up for her rights, and using her words instead of her fist as Martin Luther King said. On February 4, 1913 in Tuskegee, Alabama Rosa Parks was born to a teacher and a carpenter (her parents). As a child her family couldn 't support the family with the little money they earned every day. Rosa Parks health conditions were as bad as the money situation. She had developed chronic tonsillitis which is a condition that makes the tonsils have inflammatory issues. When her parents divorced she moved to Pine Level which was just outside the state capital of Montgomery. During the turn of the 20th century, the former Confederate states had established new constitutions and electoral laws that effectively disenfranchised black voters and, in Alabama, many poor white voters as well. Under the control of white-established Jim Crow laws, passed after Democrats regained control of southern legislatures, racial segregation was imposed in public facilities and retail stores in the South, including public transportation. Bus and train companies enforced the seating policies with separate sections for blacks and whites. School bus transportation was not available for black schoolchildren in the South, and black education was always underfunded due to the lack of attention on the black schools.
