Pollitt states, “Difference feminists want to give women credit for these good behaviors by raising them from the level of instinct or passivity- the Camille Paglia vision of femininity- to the level of moral choice and principled decision” (407). Pollitt maybe thinks that logically women only follow difference feminism because it makes them feel good, this shouldn’t be the case. Pollitt may be suggesting that the ideas of difference feminism can be countered by looking at the world. Difference feminists claim that the lives of men and women are distinct. Pollitt logically claims that, “The ultimate paradox of difference feminism is that it has come to the fore at a moment when the lives of the sexes are becoming less distinct than they ever have been in the West” (411).
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.
Thesis: “This episode Crystallizes the irony that although American men tend to talk more than women in public situations, they often talk less at home. And this pattern is wreaking havoc with marriage” (Tannen 2). The author placed the thesis right after a personal experience story to help readers visualize her idea. Perhaps she is convincing her audience to agree with her thoughts. The next opening top sentence begins an argument of why men and women decided on divorces.
The women all want to fight for their rights to have the same rights as men. Feminism in A Thousand splendid suns - While reading the novel I could see at the beginning of the novel that this novel can be examined with a feminist lens. The first thing that I saw in the novel is that the main character of the novel is played by a young girl (Mariam) as well as a girl who is growing up in a less fortunate condition. While reading the novel it was obvious that in “A Thousand Splendid Suns” men have authority over women, domesticity, which states that women belong at home, and the representation of elderly women as bitter, and
Are you someone with rights; then let’s see where women’s right movement began.I feel Woman's right to suffrage by Susan B. Anthony was most compelling.It was to persuade the united states that women are people who should have rights. The main ideas are women are people, to make a law it would go against the constitution, and what it means to be a citizen. The emphasis on what the preamble says is the most important main idea. Susan B. anthony goes back to what the preamble and how it says ,“ we the people.” (Anthony. )The rhetorical devices she used are logos, ethos, vocabulary, paragraph structure, and allusion.
Malala wrote I am Malala to introduce her life to the world and how women all around the world do not obtain basic human rights. Now that she’s a well known figure, Malala Yousafzai will not stop advocating the importance of education. Malala utilizes various rhetorical strategies such as pathos, imagery, and juxtaposition to convey her message that education is a basic human right to both men and women. Malala utilizes pathos to evoke emotions towards the audience on reasons why education should be a right. Yousafzai reveals, “Because when a teacher appreciates you, you think, I am something!
Sarah believed that all women should have an opportunity to pursue their own careers and dreams. According to Carol Berkin, “the Grimke sisters were among the first abolitionists to recognize the importance of woman's rights and to speak and write about the cause of female equality.” Sarah fought against gender inequalities by making speeches in front of audiences. She encouraged women to speak their minds. Sarah said, “we began using proportions of our lectures to defend our right to speak. ‘What we claim for ourselves we claim for every woman!’” (Kidd 331).
The appeals she used really connected to the audience in one or many ways. Coming into a conclusion, Sojourner Truth used logical appeals to persuade us, ethical appeals to make the audience believe she can be trusted, and emotional appeals to make the audience feel or believe something. In her speech she talked about woman's rights and negro's right and how that needed to change because you are judging somebody based on their skin tone, gender, etc. And in a way she connected with everyone somehow. This speech was very important because Sojourner Truth was one of many who brought this issue to the public's eye and really tried to make a change for the
You think you’re better’n your father, now, don’t you, because he can’t? i’ll take it out of you”(Twain 21) Widow Douglas and Miss Watson stand for the comity of religious woman in America and the judge is stands for the government with laws and regulations. Finally and very importantly to be clear Mark Twain utilized Diction and word choice to reveal the different languages in the South derived from these cultures in an effort for the reader to engage in a more realistic approach for his message about slavery, society and standards to be understood. In the beginning of his novel Mr. Twain in a clever detail as the narrator and character explains about the different dialects that are found especially in Missouri “the Missouri negro dialect; the extremest form of the backwoods Southwestern dialect; the ordinary “Pike County” dialect; and four modified varieties of this last “(Twain 4) .
