Catt’s development of logos or use of reasoning is effective because it aids in the building and credibility of her argument. Without it, Catt would be discarded as someone who doesn't know what she is talking about. Not only does Catt use historic quotes to develop her logos she uses facts to convince congress that the time has come for woman suffrage. She brings up the fact that we are behind other countries when it comes to this issue. Facts help develop Catt’s overall argument because they add to the reasoning behind the need for woman suffrage.
Human rights clearly include women’s rights and the fact that they are still considered as two different topics is disgraceful. In Aristotle’s Rhetorical logos are referred to as “the structure and content of text”. Clinton is able to associate women’s rights and human’s rights when she states that “If the term 'women 's rights ' were to be interchangeable with the term 'human rights ' the world community would be a better place because human rights effect the women who raise the world 's children, care for the elderly, run companies, work in hospitals, right for better education and better health care”. She wants to convince the audience to feel as if both phrases are identical to one another and uses logos to accomplish that. According to the data world bank, “approximately 50 percent of the world population is female”, and Clinton’s use of this logo allows the audiences’ perspective to change.
In To Kill a Mockingbird, churches prove that they want no part of helping one another solve racial issues. When Calpurnia brings Jim and Scout to her church, she didn’t expect anyone to say anything about it, given what their father was doing, but this proved to be untrue. Almost as soon as she steps in the door with them, one member, named Lulu tells Calpurnia,”You ain’t got no business bringin’ white chillun here-they got their church, we got our’n.”(Lee 158). This goes to show that not matter who you were, members of the opposite church were not supportive.
Her work on Women’s right became an international phenomenon and inspired fellow feminist like Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony to pick up the torch and write their own declaration of liberty. Women should not have been denied equal rights such as equal representation under the law and in the courtroom for so
Carrie Chapman Catt uses a lot of ideas about democracy in her speech that was logical. Catt uses logic to appeal to her audience from the first reason of women suffrage inevitability to the end of the speech. Catt uses the Declaration of independence, which turn out to be the basic rule of government (Catt, 1917). This is because it states that all men (women) are created equal and Catt used that along with the quote from Woodrow Wilson that states “we are fighting for the things which we have always carried nearest to our hearts: for democracy, for the right of those who submit to authority to have a voice in their own government” (Catt, 1917). The logic in Wilson’s quote as it relates to women’s suffrage is if democracy is the right of those who submit to authority to have a voice in their own government than why do women not allow to vote because they too submit to authority as men do.
August of 1920, the year that became a remarkable change for women, allowing them to vote. Before that, women weren’t allowed to vote and women such as Susan B. Anthony fought for that right. In her letter “On Women’s Right to Vote”, she furthers her purpose by telling all the citizens of the United States that women are people too and are entitled the right to vote just as their male companions. Throughout the speech, Anthony uses pathos, ethos, logos and other rhetorical devices to push her point across.
A Response to Jane Addams Primary Document Why Women Should Vote On August 19, 1920 the 19th Amendment was ratified, finally giving women the right to vote. But what instances led up to this pivotal moment in history? Jane Addams does a great service in providing thorough information as to the reasons why women should be given this right in her document, Why Women Should Vote. She writes that this document is an attempt to show how women of that time were failing in their daily duties in the home due to a lack of conscience in the outside world around them.
In 1874, Susan B. Anthony wrote a petition to Untied States Congress requesting: “that the fine imposed upon your petitioner be remitted, as an expression of the sense of this high tribunal that her conviction was unjust." (Anthony) Anthony believed the fine $100 USD was unjust because she and her friends were just trying to fight for an amendment that would guarantee women’s voting rights. NWSA kept on with their steps to achieve their goal. In 1878, the Women Suffrage Amendment, later became the Ninth Amendment, had first introduced in the Congress of United States. “Susan B. Anthony: The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not denied or abridged by the United States or by any state on account of sex.”
Charlie Presti HST-201-02 28 October 2016 Anne Hutchinson Anne Hutchinson was vocal about what she believed in, and no one or thing was going to stop her. “A Radically Different Voice: Gender and Language in the Trials of Anne Hutchinson”, captures the struggles and conflict of Anne Hutchinson in the 1630’s. This article was written by Lad Tobin who focuses on gender differences and roles and how language was used and interpreted between men and women (1). An analysis of Anne Hutchinson 's trials over expressing her opinion and beliefs to the most powerful ministers starts making people think twice about their role as a male or female and how their language is communicated to a listener.
This book challenged the biblical scripture from a woman’s standpoint. Stanton had to be very confident about her viewpoints to be daring enough to publish this story, considering the large amount of Christians who could be upset because she was
Do not put such unlimited power in the hands of the Husbands." To which John responds, "as to your extraordinary Code of Laws, I cannot but laugh." In Abigail 's letter, she was pleading with her husband to give women not only voting rights, but other rights as well. Abigail 's appeal for women 's rights revealed that women in this society were powerless, and consequently Abigail had to implore John. Moreover, John said he could not but laugh, which portrayed Abigail 's idea as outlandish. Therefore, John 's response demonstrated unfamiliarity with the concept of women 's rights or equality; through John 's letter, the colonial man 's frame of mind, which was ignorant to the idea of women 's rights, was exposed, and women would not receive voting rights until 1920.
However, when thought of, most people remember her contributions to the women’s rights movement. She, and other feminists such as Elizabeth Cady Stanton, began to realize that there were numerous similarities between slaves and women. Both were fighting to get away from the male-dominated culture and beliefs. In 1848, these women began a convention in Seneca Falls, regarding women’s rights(Brinkley 330). They believed that women should be able to vote, basing their argument on the clause “all men and women are created equal”.
He replied to her plea in a letter of his own claiming “…, We know better than to repeal our Masculine systems” (Adams 57). Despite the support John Adams had of women gaining independence, he knew that other men were not. Over seventy years later, while petitioning for the rights of women, Susan B. Anthony frequently addressed the opposing side of the debate against the women’s suffrage movement. In her noteworthy speech given in New York about the bias of rejecting women’s suffrage, she identified the notable argument which was the cornerstone of the anti-women side of the debate. Anthony counseled, “It is urged that the use of the masculine pronouns he, his and him in all the constitutions and laws, is proof that only men we meant to be included in their provisions” (Anthony 281).
I believe a hero is someone who accepts everyone no matter what, does good even when no one is looking and is willing to broaden their views and not be self centered. Therefore, no, I do not think Kim davis is a hero because she discriminates a group of people because of her own religious views and she is a hypocrite. She says she does everything under God and the Bible but she has commited several sins herself! If Kim Davis wants to punish others because of how she interpreted the Bible, then she should punish herself first for commiting adultery and having four marriages and three divorces and more than one affair.
