Rhetorical Analysis of “Women’s Rights are Human Rights” For a long time, women have been treated badly by the society that they live in. They have been killed because of dowry, they have been suffering from rape, and they haven’t been treated equal as men. Women were not allowed to take important decisions of their life, and they didn’t have a right to speak up for themselves. Therefore, Hillary Clinton was supporting women’s right in her speech, “Women’s right are Human rights” by talking about how women do not have equal rights as men, and how they have to go through tough situations.
She brought up the Equal Rights Amendment reminding congress that “women do not have the same opportunities that men do.” Not only does she speak about the discrimination between men and women, but she also speaks about discrimination against blacks (Graveline). She stood for what she believed in and persuaded many with her adamancy. As the only African American women in congress at the time, giving this speech about the equal rights of women gave Chisholm a sense of authority.
She wants her audience to see how much this means to women in society and how it is a dream for women. She wants them to see it is bigger than many things and not something to ignore. She is effective also in the sense that she is referring to MLK’s speech and thus showing the importance of her words she is stating. She also uses power in her tone to almost attack the values of the members on the International Olympic Committee. She does this by saying that the “IOC’s vote will be a fundamental test of its commitment to women and its own core Olympic values, particularly equality” (Finch).
At this point she is giving into the idea of women being taken from their families and given specific roles in a controlled environment; the idea of women being classified by the fertility of their womb or the status of their husband. Controversially, Offred also
She subtly interjects a commentary on the absence of sufficient historical research concerning the role women played in shaping our society, past and
Throughout her speech, Sojourner Truth is utilizing repetition to the best of her ability in the form of rhetorical questions. While speaking about how she can do as much as a man, then she asks, “Ain’t I A Woman?” every few sentences. This simplistic idea of repetition impacted the audience substantially. WHile what seemed like a harmless question makes the audience (women) want to rise up and fight for the rights they so rightfully deserve.
She uses this to emphasize her point, and to get the audience thinking about the question. As a result, the audience can relate the questions to themselves and think about how it affects them. Although women have an education just like men why should they have to follow behind men and do what they want? That’s the idea that she gets across to the audience by asking these
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.
Susan B. Anthony, a woman who was arrested for illegally voting in the president election of 1872, in her “On Women's Right to Vote” speech, argues that women deserve to be treated as citizens of America and be able to vote and have all the rights that white males in America have. She begins by introducing her purpose, then provides evidence of how women are citizens of America, not just males by using the preamble of the Constitution, then goes on about the how this problem has became a big problem and occurs in every home in the nation, and finally states that women deserve rights because the discrimination against them is not valid because the laws and constitutions give rights to every CITIZEN in America. Anthony purpose is to make the woman of America realize that the treatment and limitations that hold them back are not correct because they are citizens and they deserve to be treated like one. She adopts a expressive and confident tone to encourage and light the hearts of American woman. To make her speech effective, she incorporates ethos in her speech to support her claims and reasons.
DBQ Communism and Women’s Rights Adelaida Urrea In the twentieth century, communist movements encouraged the involvement of women to their societies, depending on them for the development of modern societies based primarily on equality. Therefore women started to gain political equality and economic power through the different opportunities given by the Communist Party that allowed them to incorporate as respectable members in society. Nevertheless, at the beginning of the 20th century, there was still certain discrimination against women, who have always been associated with a submissive position; however communist leaders understood the importance of giving women public recognition in order to improve their rights, change these past
Within each of these stories, Irving wrote about how women were an essential part of a man’s life, yet they were also a burden. The women were needed to cook, clean, and care the family, nothing else. Consequently, if a woman tried to stand up for herself or her family, she could face bitter attention from her husband, occasionally domestic violence. As the years went on, civil rights movements became global and women used their voices to discuss their oppression and mistreatment.
America Adame Mrs.Gonzalez Engl 1302.S63 12 Feb ,2018 Women’s Suffrage Elizabeth is very well known for empowering the first movement in pushing for society especially men recognize women as actual citizens. She is especially known for the speech she did in Seneca falls and her use of rhetorical devices to make sure she has people’s attention and show how serious she was about the subject. In Seneca Falls Keynote Address, Elizabeth Cady Stanton uses anaphora’s, metaphors and allusion to persuade the audience to show that women should be treated equally just like men and should be more appreciated.

People remember this has a great speech because what she represents in this speech is hope, gratefulness, and guidance. Also the rhetorical devices she uses makes the speech that much more personal. Her use of an apostrophe or using an imaginary person was a great addition to the speech. She stats “ where after all do universal human rights begin? In a small places, close to home, so close and so small that they cannot be seen on any maps of the world of the individual person; the individual person; the neighborhood he lives in; the school or college he attends”(adoption).
In his exclusive essay for Glamour, titled “President Obama Says, “This Is What a Feminist Looks Like”, former president Barack Obama shares his views as a feminist, as well as how it has impacted his life as a son, husband, father, and president. He states how growing up with a single mother, supporting his wife, and raising two daughters has inspired and formed his views as a feminist. Throughout his life, he has seen the progress of women’s role in society enhance over time and he claims that right now is an “extraordinary time to be a woman”. Though there is still room for improvement on women 's rights, our country has made great progress in the act of women’s rights, according to Obama. 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.
For example Anthony says, “but this oligarchy of sex, which makes father, brothers, husband, sons, the oligarchs over the mother and sisters, the wife and daughters, of every household” This is very sad since women and girls should not be ruled or told what to do because they are thought of to be less than man. The constitution is in place to have a unified country not to have an oligarchy of men lead households. The pathos appeal is used to show what suffering women are going through due to men ruling them, and not knowing how to fight back. Susan B. Anthony in her speech also says, “Are women persons?.....and no state has the right to make a law, or to enforce an old law, that shall abridge their privileges and immunities.”, which also connects with the emotions of the audience. She is trying to make people feel bad that women are treated less even though they are just as righteous as men to have the same privileges.
