Huffiington’s article was one that successfully executed the ideas and convince her audience to agree on her stance due to the content within her supporting details. Her ethos was dominant all throughout the article in her references to figures more credible than she. She quotes, “ ‘The campaigns can sort of distract reporters throughout the day by helping fuel these mini-stories, mini-controversies,’ said the New York Times' Jeff Zeleny” (Huffington 4). The reference to a person that works in a prestigious publishing company urges the reader to believe that the idea being argued by Huffington is indeed correct. Huffington also draws in her audience through a specific tone, that which casualizes and personalizes the article, almost as if listening to a person speak.

One of the central themes of this course was an appreciation for the struggle that women faced in gaining equality in athletics and other forums. The first film Dare to Compete highlighted these issues extremely well. From the early history of women in sports, it was clear that women's participation in sports faced many opponents. This film also related the struggle for gender equality in sports in a larger historical context. At one point, the film recalled Sojourner Truth's moving Ain't I A Woman speech.
I Want A Wife, Or Maybe A Husband As I read Judy Brady's article, "I Want A Wife," I found it to be full of humor and witticism. Brady mentions many relevant points for wanting a wife throughout the essay that I tend to agree with, but she always uses sarcasm and takes it a bit too far. As I continued to read, I realized that there are some comments that compare to my own life experiences. Brady does a good job at getting the reader's attention rather quickly by using the title " I Want A Wife", considering that she is a female, and the date when the essay was written (December 1971). These observations, coupled with her never ending excuses of why she wants a wife throughout the essay, kept me interested and also had me considering how they might compare to my life experiences.

She took all of that and went on to become a famous talk show host, an actress, and an owner of her own network. Let’s not forget her magazine either. Courage helped me to survive, just as it did with Oprah. It took telling the truth, through our fear, being real, to be able to tell our stories. It took plodding through our pain, standing up for ourselves, and accepting challenges, to make us what we are today, strong women.
Markandaya’s writing style compels her audience to feel as if we are experiencing life by her side, making the novel both poignant and powerful. Throughout this essay I will discuss how Nectar in a Sieve and ZenZeLe shine light on the “winners” and “losers” of development through a woman’s perspective. This essay will also consider those changes and apply them to the concept of the word development as it applies to a woman’s private and public life. The title Nectar in a Sieve reveals much about the novel itself, and encompasses the way hope shaped Rukmani’s private and public life. First let’s discuss the metaphor this title represents.

Women voice Speech transcript Good morning ladies and gentlemen, Being a woman in the society which men seems to have more advantages, and even though it has been a long history of feminism movement, today we can still see that women do not get the equal opportunities as men do. That is why it is very important to keep challenging the society on stereotype about women. Part of this is educating the young generation about what it is really like to be a woman and inspiring them to speak up about this issue. Today I am going to suggest the three very useful and effective texts to be included in a new resource titled Women voice which is going to be used by senior students. First of all, the text I have chosen is the speech by Shirley Chiholm “Equal rights for Women” which was addressed to the United States House Of Representatives in 1969.
One of the main points that Wollstonecraft touches upon in A Vindication of the Rights of Women is the issue regarding women and education. I believe this to be one of Wollstonecraft’s strongest points in the book. According to Wollstonecraft, individual education is extremely important and women should be allowed to pursue an education equal to that of men. This statement is extremely important because during the 18th century, many people believed that women were incapable of rational thought. Wollstonecraft states that education for women "will slowly sharpen the senses, form the temper, regulate the passions as they begin to ferment, and set the understanding to work before the body arrives at maturity; so that the man may only have to proceed, not to begin, the important task of learning to think and reason."
