The third, and final, device Florence Kelley uses to build her argument is a shift in topic. Her speech is delivered to the National American Woman Suffrage Association, a group primarily concerned with the equality of voting laws. She vows to use her right to petition “in every possible way until the right to ballot is granted.” By referring to a common goal shared by the author and her audience, a sense of trust is established between the two parties.
During polls for voting 100 woman went to vote saying they are a citizen and it is a given right. Soon after Susan B Anthony was arrested for her actions that were being taken. The people believed as if they could stop Susan then they could stop the movement. At Susan's trial there were many people their supporting here. The court would not allow susan to stand up for herself just because she was a woman.
“Oh, if we lose this amendment it will kill Miss Anthony”. Many women were talking about the amendment and wondering what decision will be made about changing it. Many people could see the amount of work that Susan B Anthony had put into making her dream of voting a reality. This hyperbole is provided in this speech because it not only provides the readers and listeners with the knowledge of the effort put forth by Miss Anthony, but it shows the commitment she had for this for such a long period of time. The dedication that was given everyday and the amount of support she was giving to women across the globe in the face of difficulties and
Anthony’s speech is historically significant and reached many people in America who eventually saw that women’s suffrage should be achieved. Throughout this essay, I will discuss how she was able to persuade her audiences, what types of arguments she used, and how powerful the speech proved to be in assisting in women’s suffrage. As I begin to explain these topics, I will examine how this led to an increased amount of attention on women’s rights and eventually led to the Nineteenth Amendment being created in 1920. Susan once said it was we, the people; not we, the white male citizens; nor yet we, the male citizens; but we, the whole people, who formed the union. (Barnett 42).
The speeches of Susan B. Anthony and Franklin D. Roosevelt on women's right to vote were both powerful and influential in their own ways. While both speeches aimed to promote gender equality and secure women's right to vote, they differed in terms of rhetorical strategies and strength of arguments. In this essay, I argue that Susan B. Anthony's speech was stronger than that of Franklin D. Roosevelt, owing to its passionate rhetoric and logical arguments. Anthony's speech delivered in 1873 was a forceful and emotional appeal to the audience to recognize women's rights as equal citizens of the United States. She used powerful imagery to draw parallels between women's suffrage and the fight against slavery, arguing that denying women the right to vote was just as oppressive as slavery.
Thousands of women have screamed at the top of their lungs, clawed at the patriarchy, and tirelessly fought for their rights as citizens of the United States of America. From the beginning of mankind, women have been labeled as inferior to men not only physically, but mentally and intellectually as well. Only in 1920 did women gain the right to voice their opinions in government elections while wealthy white men received the expected right since the creation of the United States. A pioneer in women’s suffrage, Susan B. Anthony publicly spoke out against this hypocrisy in a time when women were only seen as child bearers and household keepers. Using the United State’s very own Constitution and Declaration as ammunition, Anthony wrote countless
During Progressive Era, there were many reforms that occurred, such as Child Labor Reform or Pure Food and Drug Act. Women Suffrage Movement was the last remarkable reform, and it was fighting about the right of women to vote, which was basically about women’s right movement. Many great leaders – Elizabeth Cad Stanton and Susan B. Anthony - formed the National American Women Suffrage Association (NAWSA). Although those influential leaders faced hardship during this movement, they never gave up and kept trying their best. This movement was occurred in New York that has a huge impact on the whole United States.
Women used many different methods to earn the right to vote in the Women’s Suffrage Movement. One method women used to earn support is that they organized a parade in Washington, D.C., the same day the president was coming into town so that there was large crowds. Many of the people in the crowd were men who, along with drinking also disagreed with the right for women to vote. They began to yell then even throw objects at the women walking in the parade. Eventually, the police walked away giving the men the opportunity to attack.
In today’s world, it seems to be that women have the same rights as men, but it wasn't always this way. The speech “Women’s Rights to Suffrage” by Susan B Anthony is the most compelling of all. Susan B Anthony persuades the audience that all women should have the same rights as men. It’s shown through the speech that the federal constitution says “we the people”, the government has no right to take away rights from just one gender, and that women are considered people as well. The fact that the constitution says “we the people” is a primary point in this speech.
Thesis Proposal Title The impact women’s right to vote had on economic growth in the U.S, as women in integrated into the labour force from the 1920’s to the 1990’s. Background Prior to the 1920s, before women got their right to vote in America. They took up in the more subservient role in society, they were not seen as equal to the men.
She brought up a very important point of “place at the table”, by asking the question of; “What difference does it make if you have a place at the table and act like everyone else? Everyone was advised to always bring their personal experiences to their current situation to be able to solve matters at hand. This concept is very important as things change every day. She made mention of the fact that talking about a place at the table is talking about being empowered, and being empowered, depends on the individual’s believe in having something to offer which is a choice we have to
Both Making Sarah Cry and Susan B Anthony Dares To Vote share the theme of Courage. In Making Sarah Cry, when the boy is being bullied by his former friends because of a scar on his face, Sarah steps up to help him. Even though she knew that they might start bullying her again. In Susan B Anthony Dares To Vote, Susan decides to go and vote even though in her time period, women aren’t allowed to vote. When Susan goes to court, she makes a statement that all women should be allowed to vote because they are the same as men.
In a cold February Aunt Bessie hold me one her side to tell me that she has no more time to still be in this world and she trusted me with her money to change everything she wanted to get rid of. Your wish will come true after all. Time has passed after you left Aunt Bessie, you didn’t have much time to live but anyways you were always strong. Every time you worked hard to keep up with the progressives to succeed always turned out wrong. Now that you are gone, you left money to me, so that I would split it to three progressive reforms.
Finally in 1920, the nineteenth amendment was presented and allowed the women in the United States the right to vote (Kirk, G. & Okazawa-Rey, M. (2013). When thinking about how the women felt about not be able to speak up with voting situations is horrible. We are truly blessed that there were women who spoke their mind and changed the women’s lives for the
She subtly interjects a commentary on the absence of sufficient historical research concerning the role women played in shaping our society, past and
