Within the speech, Kelley uses many notable rhetorical devices, which will be analyzed in this essay. Perhaps the most noticeable of Kelley’s rhetorical devices is the vast amount of facts and statistics contained within her speech.
Finally, the Congress passed a law for women’s suffrage on June 4, 1919 which was ratified on August 18, 1920. The 19th amendment granted all American women the right to vote. Since then, women have had their opinion heard and labor conditions for children have had laws that limit the minimum age for legal labor. In conclusion, Florence Kelley uses The Story of An Hour to demonstrate in a short speech full of ethical, logical and emotional phrases, along with imagery, repetition and excellent diction, one of the diverse ways children have been used to the benefit of society while dismantling their lives throughout

Margaret Sanger distinctly uses rhetorical devices which greatly support her dedication to allow women to control their lives. Beginning this speech, Margaret Sanger used alliteration to influence her audience to form an image in their minds when she said, “Why does the Children’s Ear still remain a dream of the dim and distant future?”and when she said, “ … they call this idea indecent and immoral.” The pairing of these specific words allow Sanger to emphasize this specific group of words to provide a specific

The first way the author builds her argument is through logos, a logical appeal. Kelley utilizes an assailment of facts and statistics to lead her assertion. This is effective because of the shockingly large number of children working absurd and miserable hours.
Families that found girls a burden upon their shoulders, who found feeding cowbirds better than feeding them, who only raise them to one day sell them off to an unknown man.

Cisneros uses figurative language, repetition and imagery to characterize Rachel as a young child who wishes to grow up and be stronger.

She decides first to rake the leaves “suffocating the bushes” ; Melinda is ridding the demons from herself on the first layer of her skin.
