She questions why the unskilled and skilled men say and write so many evil and reproachful things about women. Christine proves through her words and actions that women are capable to do any work as men. Christine shows that women are not portrayed as evil in the society. As a result, Christine says "Lady, I see well that many good things have come through women, and if any evil resulted from evil women, it still seems to me that the good things brought about by good women, and also by the wise women and those learned in literature and the sciences"(De Pizan 147). However, Delaney thinks that Christine is very detailed in her writing in order to prove her position.
The speech given by Clare Boothe Luce to the Women’s National Press Club was controversial and even condemning of her audience. However, Luce pulls it off by gently preparing the audience for the criticism: she employs the fact that they invited her there to speak, a strong consideration for their feelings, praises of their profession, and a clear plea for open mindedness. She does things to create a peaceful and relaxed tone despite her words. She opens the speech with a paradox about being happy and enlightened; first saying she is “flattered” and honored, then she flips her original statement saying she is “less happy than you may think” (lines 3-4). Luce uses these positive terms to open her speech in order to set a specific mood, a mood that makes her intentions clear that she is not out to verbally assault the audience, but she is in fact going to critique and criticize them.
She makes her argument by emotionally transmitting her views to her audience, who are mostly women. She delivers a strong message by explaining from her memories. 2.

As an individual listening to Truth's speech, you would most likely become eager to fight for what it is you want. Truth uses her words wisely and makes a powerful statement, that the audience will be affected by in some way. Truth is a powerful women with experience and intelligence to share with the
Overall, it is a well written essay, she uses a lot of strong words and emotion to show how it affected her. She shared her own experience which made her very credible and likeable because she wasn't making any of this up. Even though she could have used a lot of facts on how many women are affected, what age group reports the most, where you most likely to be assaulted and more. There are many sources out there for her to use. The essay was easy to follow nothing was confusing, but there were some repeated words and other experiences.

In “O Pioneers!” by Willa Cather it is easy to see how similar Cather is to her own character Alexandra Bergson, who many of Cather’s own views can be learned through. Throughout the story there are many examples of realistic, romantic, and naturalistic thinking. Realistic thinking may not be represented the most by in “O Pioneers!”, but I believe Cather leaned toward it a little more than the other types of thinking. She had a realistic view of a woman’s place in society and refused to just be a housewife.
From day one in her new attire, she relates her respect for the women who get through a day in heels. By showing she understands how someone in the audience feels she is relating to her audience on an emotional level, while also showing her respect for them.

Women’s rights and the way they live has changed greatly over the course of time. Back in the day, women did not have equal rights to men and they had to face many challenges in order to receive the jobs they wanted. Nowadays, women can get the same jobs as men and their power is much more appreciated. The 1930’s affected women in a positive way over time as they tried to work their way up in government positions, obtain more profitable jobs, and help provide for their families; but they still had a long ways to go getting equal rights to men.
Anna Goldsworthy writes in the introduction to her Quarterly Essay, that it’s never been a better time to be a woman in this country ‘on the surface’. Despite the hegemony of females to crucial positions within government, large business and greater education, women are still held to incredible standards in what Goldsworthy marks as an ‘image-centric culture’. Before I read the essay, I thought it was going to be solely based around women in politics, but it wanders off into the general area of sexism and misogyny where she Goldsworthy starts writing about how the female is viewed in common society, and then further away into Gonzo porn, online culture, typically associated with teenage women and their image and how they are viewed online, and also how women may go out and correct their flaws by makeup and plastic surgery. Goldsworthy begins her essay here with Gillard 's speech, now referred to as simply ‘the misogyny speech’, it was a hit out of Abbott and his associated endorsement of ‘sexism and misogyny’.
Being that she is a lesbian as well goes to show that she put not only her intellectual abilities, but as well as he heart and soul into this ethnography and overall project. When she mentions her interest on queering reproduction as a reader you can read the enthusiasm and well as the dedication that she was willing to put into this project. Her disclosure made it relatable for women in the same position as the ones she mentions in the book. Knowing that she and other women might be in the same position as other women in the future also made it clearer for her to realize how difficult and exhausting it is, and how strong the dedication of wanting a family should be. That it self made the readers not necessarily relate but helped them
How she relayed the message to the readers were very smart in the fact that she was unbiased. This was an article that anyone could read and it wasn’t just pointed to a particular group of people. Her personal experiences throughout the story made us sympathize for her, which is another great tactic that she used. Her tone throughout the story are both defensive and sympathetic which, again, pull you into the story even further. Ultimately, I do think that the message that Balsamo was trying to make came across to the readers.
