Being born into a politically involved family allowed her to grow up with the familiarity of the political world and has allowed women to have a more pronounced voice in political decisions. Roosevelt not only impacted the way of women politically, but she also had a positive impact on women economically. Becoming the First Lady in the White House enabled Roosevelt to have even more of an impact on political decisions that were made. She was a leader in her own right and was involved in numerous decisions that were made to the U.S. economy (History.com Staff, “Eleanor Roosevelt”). In addition, Eleanor influenced women in the social aspect as well.
Increasingly, women recognised that campaigning was limited whilst women could not make their voices heard directly. As one entity fighting for their rights, women would eventually earn the right to vote. To finish off the poem, “...Makes a fountain of touches/Truly divine” is the perfect summation of the feminist movement, and can be applied to the fight against racism, homosexims, violence, and more. It is incredible to think that a simple touch, physically or emotionally, has the power to shape the world. The poem tells me that with my hope, your hope, and the hope of all women put together, anything is possible.
Today, millions of women can implement their rights to vote in all elections in the united states of America, but this (rights) did not come easily to those women who sacrifice their lives to make this happen. In the speech “Address to Congress on Women’s Suffrage”, Catt delivered her message for women’s right from a firsthand account of what she had experienced as a woman living in the United States of America in the 19th century. She advocated for the rights of women to vote because she believes in equal rights and justice for all citizens. The speech was very successful because of the use of ethos, pathos, and logos. The purpose of the speech was to pressure Congress into passing a legislation that would give women the right to vote in the United States of America.

She is effective here because she is using power and history in her writing to persuade her audience. She wants her audience to see how much this means to women in society and how it is a dream for women. She wants them to see it is bigger than many things and not something to ignore. She is effective also in the sense that she is referring to MLK’s speech and thus showing the importance of her words she is stating. She also uses power in her tone to almost attack the values of the members on the International Olympic Committee.

In Virginia Woolf’s essay “Professions for Women”, she uses different rhetorical appeals to prove her point. She talks about the hardships of being a woman journalist and how professional women have many obstacles to overcome to become a professional woman. The main obstacle that Woolf believes every woman has to overcome to be successful was the “angel” or the voice in our own minds. Woolf’s most effective appeal in this essay was pathos but she also included ethos as well as logos. Woolf wrote this essay in the 30s and in that time, women were still fighting for equality.
The Women’s Suffrage Movement is one of the biggest impacts on the women in different countries around the world because it allowed women to have the right to vote, have equal rights, privileges of success, and shape the perspective of how women are seen today; but what is the Women’s Suffrage Movement?

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’. She identifies that Gillard’s speech was a detour from the safer and more common female politician’s tactic of ‘cop it and move on’.
If an overwhelming 47% (a 16% net cushion) agree with the funding of a group, why would then go against the people you are meant to represent. Lastly, as citizens, those who should vote should use their power to find representatives that express their feelings properly.
