Elizabeth Cady Stanton dedicated her life to the woman’s rights and suffrage movements. In doing so, she spent a portion of her life delivering speeches to appeal for the equality of women. Although the audiences varied each time she gave a speech, when she resigned from her position as president of the National American Woman Suffrage Association in 1892 Stanton’s audience shaped her purpose, tone, and argument style of her speech. In her resignation speech, The Solitude of Self (Stanton, 1892), Stanton used the fundamental principles of government to appeal to an exclusively white male audience for the equality of women. Stanton’s upbringing played a major role in her participation in the woman’s rights and suffrage movements.
The sneaking of macaroons put up with a result of Nora’s role as a child within the marriage. The macaroons show that Nora is not the perfect doll that Torvald tries to mold her into; nevertheless, she is not able to think of any other way where she can prove herself like her husband’s doll. Still, she tries to disguise her real personality and is constantly lying about many things. She hasn’t been taken seriously and treated with very less respect by her husband. Her lies are less a thought of her own character and more a reflection of her husband’s surroundings .She does feel the need to keep up her self –respect, while satisfying her own needs.
During his presidency, he admits that he was working on creating policies to further the equality of women and their rights. Policies such as equal pay, equal work, and protection of the reproductive rights of women. With the use of various rhetorical strategies, he is able to express his perspective on feminism through his personal experiences and develop a strong argument.

"Failure is impossible" as Susan Anthony stated to assert that she would never give up defending women rights .she believed that women and men should have equal rights. And she spent her life calling for freedom for women, and she was always standing against slavery by all its meanings. When she were young she worked at her father`s mill instead of a woman that got tired and her father paid her money but he paid much more money for the men working there. And while she was a teacher she called for equal payment for both men and women. As men had "no more brains than women".
The Barbie dolls are causing the little girl to feel insecure so that she needs to make her Barbie’s appear as if they were new. This insecurity may develop over time to a low self-esteem. Society makes it seem that women have to be beautiful, skinny housewives that are dependent on men. Barbie is contributing to these ideals. “Because we don’t have money for a stupid-looking boy doll when we’d both rather ask for a new Barbie outfit next Christmas.” The little girl feels pressured by not having a Ken doll, but at the same time all of the little girls would rather ask for a new outfit with accessories than a new Ken

If it wasn’t for her women wouldn’t be seen as anything but a cooking and cleaning machine. She is the person women should give thanks to for all the rights they possess today. Alice Paul is mainly known for her role in women’s suffrage movement which resulted in the passage of the 19th amendment in the Us constitution which prohibits any citizen to be denied the right to vote on the basis of sex. After 1920, Paul spent a half century as a leader of the National Women’s Party. Which fought for the Equal Rights Amendment to secure constitutional equality for women.
This meant she was seen as a huge feminist and wrote many books, said many speeches and led many strikes so women would be equal as men, “‘I do not believe that women are better than men. We have not wrecked, nor corrupted legislature, nor done many unholy things that men have done; but then we must remember that we have not had the chance.’- Jane Addams.” (weebly.com). This quote showed how much she believed in equality for all, even for the smallest things. Addams also fought for the improvement of education and so everyone could get a free education. She was even on the Chicago Board of Education to help her make this difference for America.
Women can be astronauts, doctors, leaders, business people...anything that they set their mind to. Instead in our real culture, we are teaching girls that to be accepted in this society, you have to be unintelligent and sexy. If we instead advertised more positive messages to young girls, I think that our society could benefit by a new generation of empowered females who don’t feel that it is necessary to be sexual. Sexy Inc really opened my eyes to massive amount of advertising that our society has become numb to. We should focus on family as a social structure and teach parents that these outside influences, like the media, celebrities and overly sexual dolls, are affecting young girls and causing them to think that being sexual at such a young age is appropriate.
Anthony counseled, “It is urged that the use of the masculine pronouns he, his and him in all the constitutions and laws, is proof that only men we meant to be included in their provisions” (Anthony 281). As noted in the previous section, she was able to use this thought to construct a counter argument which leads to the success of the women’s suffrage movement. Additionally, with the arguments detailed by Adams and Anthony, we must not forget about the religious angle. In 1851, Sojourner Truth addressed the Ohio Women’s Rights Convention, bringing to light the importance of the women’s suffrage movement to African-American women. In her speech, she deliberately acknowledged the societal differences between African-American women and white
The women wrote the “Declaration of Sentiments” after the “Declaration of Independence” (CUNY). It included the statement, “We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men and women are created equal” (CUNY). CUNY writes that the women wanted themselves to be included in the fifteenth amendment, along with African-Americans, but alas, their request was denied. It took a long time, but eventually, women got the right to vote in the nineteenth amendment in 1920
Women don’t need men because they can function without them and if not better. These women can outrun, outsmart and reproduce asexually better than men. So, why are the men in power in the late 19th century refusing rights to women if in fact women are the superior of the genders. To those men, they “do not allow our women to work. Women are loved—idolized—honored—kept in the home to care for the children.” Gilman shows that women are capable of more than that and can exceed the capabilities of means that they can function without them.
