Logos is presented in various ways such as statistics or even just logical thinking. Pollitt’s logical thinking is placed when she explains that Nancy Chodorow, a difference feminist who believes that naturally women are relational and men are autonomous, is wrong when analyzing the real world. Pollitt states, “If Chodorow is right relational women and autonomous men should be the norm, but are they?” (404). Pollitt is informing us that it is clear that we all seen men and women who do not follow such criteria. Readers can see and relate with Pollitt’s idea, and realize the logical reasoning behind it.
“‘An unwanted pregnancy could derail a sailor’s chance for promotion, because sea duty is “career enhancing “she said(Book). Whether a Woman is pregnant could determine what position in the military she is or could even be bumped to a lower rank. Women should not be able to be in the military because so many are lost to pregnancy . Women in the military are also more likely to be tortured or raped (Herbert). Since most men are attracted to women this is the leading reasons women in the military are more likely to be raped than men .
At first most nurses were men, but this gender dominance gradually changed to the opposite, because of this change, more women become nurses, thus, nursing was not viewed as a profession, instead it was oftentimes and still is, viewed as “women’s work” (Sullivan, 2002). As lack of funding posed a problem for nursing education, apathy directed toward the oppression of nurses by male doctors, by the 1930s, nurses had been reduced to acting as aides to men (Groups & Roberts, 2001). feminismnursing.blogspot.com (accessed 7th June
Moreover, women with a foreign background should not have more difficulties when searching for jobs nor should women with other skin color than white feel invisible the mainstream media. One of the main arguments against intersectionality within feminism, is that intersectionality will cause feminism to be more about who to feel the sorriest for instead of improving feminism. I totally disagree with that argument on the ground that I believe intersectionality is rather about the fact that all of us experience events differently therefor it is crucial to listen to everyone’s experiences nevertheless to not place each other´s experiences into a hierarchy of who to emphasize the most. In conclusion, feminism should become more intersectional because it is necessary that within feminism bring forward discrimination that all women living in society experience. The time has come to cease making invisible the minority women.
Anthony wanted to persuade her listeners on why women should have the right to vote. The Federal Constitution is referenced in Anthony’s speech as proof of equality. Anthony wanted her audience to grasp the feeling of being provided a document that granted your freeness, your rights, however unable to use it because of your sex and color of skin. Anthony uses the creation of the Federal Constitution to contradict the unlawfulness of women voting. Susan felt “And it is a downright mockery to talk to women of their enjoyment of the blessings of liberty while they are denied the use of the only means of securing them provided by this democratic-republican government -- the ballot.” (Anthony, 1872).
“In our society women stand for the side of life that seems to be outside history—for personal relationships, love and sex – so that these aspects of life actually seem to become women’s areas.” (Williamson 101). As the writer uses this quote from Williamson she states that the content of magazines like Cosmo are unnecessary, and downright humiliating for women. The writer also argues that the magazine should include concepts such as politics, economics or global issues. Now this argument she makes, is a reason for me to drift away from her thoughts and oppose her idea. In my opinion the author weakens her argument by stating such a thing.
Lastly, the author induced voluntary thoughts from the readers regards to this matter. In the last paragraph, the author questions the readers that may sound obvious and even stupid to some degrees: “Are women persons?”. Obviously women are human, and it may seem as if there is no need to answer this questions. But, all the disfranchisement and inequality that prevailed at that time, limited the human rights of woman. Thus, this rhetorical question was intentionally manipulated by the author to emphasize the apparent ironic situation, thus stressing the need for the change.
Greta Christina’s observation and opinion is clearly stated in her essay, “Trans People and Basic Human Rights.” Christina addresses one of the biggest topics that is greatly discussed about today, cisgender people and their botheration with transgender people. Her thesis, why do cisgender people care, is straightforward in that she starts off by agreeing with the opposing side and going to explain why cisgender people care and how they should not care. Although Christina’s point of view is skewed toward her opinion, she clearly explains the process she goes through when accepting transgender people, how she cannot be the voice of transgender for she is not one herself, and later goes into statistics that support her point. However, her argument is invalid because of the fact that she herself is not transgender (as she states) and her attempts at bringing down the opposing argument are weak. Christina’s first paragraph in her article begins as though bringing up a topic in a conversation.
Truth’s consistent repetition of “Ain’t I a woman?” creates range of effects that lie in her trying to convey a message to her audience. With her use of anaphora, she implements that women, specifically black, don't deserve their current treatment, to be treated like they are insignificant to society’s advancement. Truth also uses the literary device, allusion. She ends her speech by making an allusion to Eve, the first woman God ever made, and asked if she was so “strong” and was able to turn the world “upside down” single handedly, then why couldn't “women” come together and “turn it right side up again”? In her speech, Sojourner Truth, as well as using rhetoric, also uses biblical references and her position as a mother to appeal to the audience.
One reason is that measurement lacks validity as self-reporting is the main method used. Societal roles may deter individuals from responding truthfully or even participating in the research. While the feminist movement has championed in pushing the agenda for equality for women not only in the United States but in societies across the globe, feminist theorists seek to challenge the masculine and feminine gender roles that are formed by societies and conform to role that are not gender biased.
