“I have encountered riotous mobs and have been hung in effigy, but my motto is: Men's rights are nothing more. Women's rights are nothing less.” Susan B. Anthony Susan B. Anthony is considered by some as the founding mother of the women’s suffrage movement in the United States. Her goal: men and women treated equally under the eyes of the law and society. The 19th Amendment in 1920 would be the culmination event for this movement, but the winds of change began blowing in 1848.
In this excerpt from a speech delivered in 1873 by Susan B. Anthony, the author directly refutes the inequal oligarchy of sex by stating the contradictions of these concepts against the constitutions of United States. By heavily emphasizing the attributes of the democracy, the author reinforces the concept of revolution, which functioned to provoke woman suffarage movement. In order to effectively state her position, the author incorporated various persuasive techniques including, reiteration of the constitutional rights, creating rapport with the readers, and inducement of voluntary thoughts regards to this matter. The author is mindfully persuasive from the very beginning, opening her speech with very clear arguement.

“It shall be my work this evening to prove to you that in thus voting, I not only committed no crime, but, instead, simply exercised my rights, guaranteed to me and all United States citizens by the National Constitution, beyond the power of any state to deny. ”(Anthony, 1) is a quote from Susan B. Anthony’s famous “Women’s Rights to the Suffrage” speech that inspired change in our great country. This speech was the most compelling of texts because she used solid evidence to support her claim and she uses many different types of figurative language. The third, fourth, and fifth paragraphs were the most important in her speech. This emphasis on ‘We the people’ and not ‘We the white male citizens’ in her third paragraph leads me to my first point.

Mary Wollstonecraft is a key figure in the early beginnings of the women’s rights movement. Wollstonecraft, born in 1759, in London, England, experienced firsthand the inequality and oppression expressed towards women during this time. Throughout her life, she fought against her odds and worked to create equality between genders. In her most well-known work, A Vindication of the Rights of Woman, published in 1792, Wollstonecraft argues a simple point: women should be as educated as men and be treated with the same respect. Her arguments are straightforward and understandable, which is why they have made such a huge difference in the way women have been viewed and treated.

They could not vote, they could not own property, and even speaking in public was looked down upon. Anti-slavery advocates existed, but women’s rights advocates did not. However, women began to speak out for their beliefs and slowly but surely, a women’s rights movement arose.
The “Ain’t I a Woman” report starts by stating that several ministers felt that men were superior to women (p. 1). I hate when I read or hear that men are superior to women because there is no support behind the statement. Men do not possess a gene that makes them more intelligent or stronger than women; therefore, the statement is ridiculous. Many people think that women are incapable of doing things on their own and that men should help them. Sojourner Truth proved them wrong by showing her muscles and stating that she got those muscles from plowing, planting, and gathering without the help from a man (p. 1).
