Let Girls Learn In her efforts to raise awareness for women’s rights at the Let Girls Learn event in early 2016, Michelle Obama, an American lawyer and the first African American First Lady of the Unites States, strategically writes her speech to display the conditions girls around the world endure to live a life without the simple right to an education. She develops her speech through the use of gratitude as a connection to the public, an appeal to pathos and the final shift in tense to establish hope among the people. Together, these strategies allow Michelle Obama to inform the society that they must unite as one in order to effectively and successfully support the education of girls around the world. Obama begins by making a personal connection with the public through gratitude for their endless efforts to assist in the program. She states that although she is a prominent leader, she never truly accomplished everything she had, alone.
They had segregated schooling, transport and toilets under the Jim Crow laws. This is justified by, ‘the popularity of protest music in the 1960s was also fuelled by the massive social change that evolved from the Civil Rights Movement, the rise of feminism,’ (4) showing that many artists were also fighting for an ideological change in the way American citizens were treated by their country, namely African Americans and women, rather than only fighting against what they believed was an unjust war. Artists like James Brown (5) fought for black empowerment in American society. Brown’s song, ‘Say it Loud: I’m Black and I’m Proud’ (5) is described as being ‘an important document in the development of the Civil Rights Movement’ (5) due to its infectious rhythm and strong message about black pride and self-empowerment. Another example of a black artist is Aretha Franklin, who wrote songs about women rising up and demanding ‘respect’ (5) in the country in which she lived, both as an African American and a woman, as shown by her song title.
In "An Academy for Women" written by Daniel Defoe Pathos and Logos are both used frequently to help his argument of women needing an equal opportunity for education to be relayed. By using emotional extravagant words Defoe was able to relate to many female oriented circumstances; not only this but he was also able to impact a needed self-reflection centered in the direction of many males. As his work is analyzed more closely it will be discovered that Logos is also being used, by logically appealing to the masses and emotionally appealing to the readers his argument was able to be successfully transmitted. First, to support his argument he opens with Pathos as his first rhetorical device. Defoe states in inhumane to deny such a majority of the population education.
She’s almost speaking the minds of the listeners through her rhetorical questions and answers them with what they should do if they don’t want this to continue. The strategies she uses made a great impact on people through her speech because she also provides an
As I continued reading Colonize This! I found a section of this book that talks about women of color facing racism in their communities. The racism section captured my attention because it is also giving examples of women who resist racism in their belonging spots. I think it is great to read about those women who suffer racism because. In addition, all the people know that there are now many laws had been issued to protect women’s rights.
Additionally, Cuddy used diverse elements to convey her ideas and main points. She was trying to communicate that the body language that people use can influence their life greatly and to fake confidence until you become confident. In my opinion, she communicated the message very well due to her amount support, such as experiments and examples that made her message very believable. In all, there are different ways that Cuddy supports what she says, including graphics, examples, experiments, data, and personal
Her narrative could be understood, if looked at in the terms of how she represents herself and how she has gained respect from other women in Puritan society ("Summary Of 'A Narrative Of The Captivity And Restoration Of Mrs. Mary Rowlandson ' - The Role Of Women In Her Removes"). Therefore, all accounts that seem different or contrary to conventional belief may run the risk against her status and reputation. Rowlandson has seen violent and untoward incidences but she was of one mind to compete status in the new social setting as a result of the war (1992-667). She begins the journey with much fear and trepidation and struggles every day in order to survive. She does not give in to despair and helplessness though.
In Tartuffe, Dorine exemplifies the meaning of each for someone she loves. She helps Mariane understand life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness is key to the enjoyment of life.
