The Rhetorical Strategies of a Latina Judge's Speech To End the Lack of Representation Throughout the diversity in the United States, there is a multitude of factors that underestimate and terminate the presence or idea of women and minorities in government roles. In current times, awareness of gender equality and excluded minorities has rose to an all- time high. Many are advocating that the way our country sees and treats intersectionality needs to change for the better. Judge Sonia Sotomayor is an advocator by spreading this public announcement through a piece of a speech. She discusses the obstacles she and other minorities face to place higher on the social ladder and to be represented during a speech at the Judge Mario G. Olmos Memorial
Gloria Anzaldúa’s “La Prieta” tell her struggles with identity by talking about prejudices she dealt with while growing up. These prejudices, such as colorism, sexism, and heteronormativity, were not only held by people outside her social groups but within them as well. Anzaldúa goes on to explain the way identity is formed by intersecting factors and not only one aspect of someone’s life therefore denying one factor of identity can cause isolation and self-hatred. The fact that Anzaldúa developed faster than is deemed normal the first struggle in forming her identity. This caused her to alienate herself since her mother asked her to keep a part of herself hidden from the world by binding her and making sure no one found out she menstruated ealy (Anzaldúa 1983, 221).
For instance, Blabbermouth lost specific rights, such as the ability to wake up and do as she wishes comfortably in her own skin. Not only does she lose many of her rights, but her self confidence too. Lastly, when she concludes to an exposure, she faces the harsh reality from society. Understanding gender inequality puts a significant impact on many people’s lives by educating them on the potential dangers and outcomes. However, eve after seeing what difficulty many people face, will there ever be an end to
Wells have much more in common than just their names. Both have exposed underlying issues in American society through pieces of writings, persistence, and course of actions they took. As women, it was extremely hard to convey their messages to the public because of the lack of rights women had at that time. Their ability to face ridicule and adversity through tough issues makes them successful individuals. although they have not fixed issues entirely there is no denying that things wouldn 't be better if it wasn 't for their course of action.
It is evident that at times she uses communitarian and the female centric nature of Cherokee society to criticize modern American gender relations and society. This is bad because it goes against what Native peoples want and would have wanted. In all, in some parts of the text Perdue either was a bit harsh or at other times did not give enough insight but still endured that the book was successful. Cherokee Women in all is a powerful and useful book to many different people for many different reasons. Basing her analysis on gender, Perdue provides insights on Native Americans and gender that would not be emphasized in different studies.
Women rights are women’s rights to vote, and do many other things that women could not do earlier on. This is also comparable to the theme because women had to fight for many things like voting and other things because men still did not believe that women were as great as men at that time. Another reason that they are comparable is because both women who were persecuted for witchcraft and women who had to fight for their rights, all were women who struggled, and this is another similarity because women who fought for their rights were trying to change the views of men, and women who were persecuted for witchcraft were persecuted because the of the men’s views that the women who were fighting for women’s rights were trying to
The reluctance was due to the belief that the camps and equipment provided were beneficial to all genders and hence the specific gender recognition was unnecessary. Despite the reluctance, laws were implemented that addressed the needs of women and the necessary protection measures required. However, these laws were not enough and they failed women refugees, for they were still vulnerable to several accounts of violence that were a consequence of chaos and helplessness. Due to civil unrest and chaos, violence increases amongst civilians. According to Schmuel and Shenker, an increase in male violence is directly correlated with an increase in chaos and a lack of order or implemented laws (1998, p. 241).
She also makes a strong argument through the use of ethos, pathos, and logos. On how people should fight and retaliate for their voices to be heard and not let the government do whatever they want to do, without questioning it. In the beginning of the essay Williams’ tone is skeptical and unsure, but as the essay progresses she seems to get more passionate and furious. Williams tone completely changes when her father reveals important information about what she thought was just a dream. “It was at this moment I realized the deceit I had been living under.
Sometimes in we know things are wrong but this rive some people to want to do it even more. How I see it is Felicia Robinson opponent wanted to win so bad that they decide to twist the facts and push people to think about a heated subject. When Felica district attorney found out about the schema and decide to use it, for their advantage shows that any good morals could be turned to something wrong. Felica has a very tough choice, and most likely would have to make a decision soon. One thing Felicia has to remember is this Is a campaign.
A women’s right to express herself freely is not taken as serious as men’s right of expression. Her freedom has come with a price, not acknowledging how freedom of expression is surface level, she does not have true freedom. To the authors of these mainstream articles think she should submit to the Flag Code over the U.S. Constitution. This is an outrageous claim, one that demands control over women, keeping her in her place. Johnson brilliantly claims that, “privilege is always at someone else’s expense and it always exacts a cost.
The Declaration of Sentiments, a document written by activists Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Lucrietia Mott, discusses injustices towards woman and the rights that have been withheld from them, such as voting and denied admittance into colleges. Stanton and Mott want readers, primarily men, to understand, to take action, and to fight against the opression that has been put on women of all ages, race and religion in the United States. Without the help of Stanton and Mott, womens rights may have been an overlooked issue yesterday and today, therefore, their message is incontestably crucial. To Stanton and Mott, women were created equal to men, and to further their declaration of this equality, they state that the rights that have been unfairly
Her parents both hold Yolanda back, but also push her forward to make the American dream a reality. Because of this, Yolanda is stuck in the middle. She does not know whether or not she should become completely American, or stick to her roots. She loves when she is called her real name instead of the “bastardized”, American version, but on the other hand, she hates the patriarchy that is part of the Dominican culture (81). The same goes for other many other things.
