Mary Wollstonecraft uses radical ideas and societal problems throughout “On National Education (1792)” to provide support for her opinion on social progress and equality. Christine de Pizan uses metaphorical writing to reinforce the idea of equality between men and women. Both authors use problems and events that are occurring during their individual time period to support their point of equality. Although both of these women lived in a time period very spread out from the other, the single idea of equality has been constant. Wollstonecraft and Pizan both use and present their individual society in a way that would promote equality by the society itself; however, one can argue that Wollstonecraft and Pizan, no matter how radical their ideas

She then started forming a group in Cambridge that would be known as “Bread and Roses”. During a time where so much change was happening it was a time for women to take a stand for themselves instead of trying to save everyone else. Popkin was very tactful and smart in her efforts to make a significant change in her own life as well as the lives of so many women. Women like Annie have certainly made my life better. Her story is an inspiration to keep standing up for myself in a patriarchal society we still live in today.
Alcee Arobin is a lady’s man who has many affairs with different women and intends to make Edna another one of his affairs. But Edna doesn’t let Alcee take control of the relationship; she writes him when she wants and decides when they should go out. Being in control is a reverse role for Edna, but she knows it is really who she is, and it is what she wants. Alcee plays along and lets Edna take control, and Edna discovers the satisfaction of using a man the way men usually use women. Although Edna has taken control of her own life, she is still not happy with her life because of the many different types of love she has experienced.
Serena Joy the wife of the commander Fred feels a great ability to hold power of Offred especially because of how much despises the fact that Offred has the ability to carry a child and she doesn’t. The way in which Serena’s extent of power is demonstrated is when she inflicts physical pain towards Offred during the ceremony to symbolise that Serena was overpowering Offred and stating that Fred was her husband not hers and that she shouldn’t be enjoying the sex. Serena Joy exerts her power through her fear and by inflicting fear, she fears Offred not being able to conceive a child therefore she is willing to break the rules to ensure that Offred conceives. She does this by arranging secret visits with Nick who is an eye and is meant to be monitoring the commander and his actions. However, whilst Serena feels that she holds power over Offred, she is providing power to Offred by allowing her to feel a sense of agency and a thrilling sense of the ‘time before’.
Terms: In my critical evaluation essay there will be many areas in which I will discuss ethos, pathos, and logos because of their relevance in the feminist organization and there effects on how people think. Ethos is something that some believe are standard form of ethics however; what one person my view as good ethics another could see and bad ethics. The whole way that the feminist movement began was with the organization using pathos to get housewife’s to feel unappreciated and to want to join their cause. Logos is how studies and research shows the long term effects that the feminist movement has had on our society. In the article “Now We Can Begin” the author uses pathos to get housewives and other women feel as unappreciated and insignificant as a housewife when she stated (Eastman, 2012) “What, then, is "the matter with women"?
Obama explained how he wanted to make sure that young women are going to be able to compete in the market place. Meanwhile, Romney wants not only men but women to be qualified for his cabinet. This shows how Obama and Romney want to make an impact in women’s lives by giving them more opportunities and help them out. Obama and Romney also shared life experiences during the debate by using Pathos. For example, Obama mentioned how he was race by a single mom and how her grandmother trained people who would end up becoming her
It successfully speaks to the audience because she does not harp or preach but rather speaks the thoughts of those in the audience in an open manner that clearly and rationally lets people confront their own beliefs on the issue and understand the laughable stereotypes of the delicacy, dependency, irrationality and inability of women. Howe’s speech points out that contrary to the disillusioned beliefs of anti-suffragist dishes will still be washed and the housework and the woman's role in society will still be preformed if they are allowed to vote. Suffrage will give an audible voice to “the working women in the sweated industries, the underpaid, the underfed women reaching out their arms”(287) crying for help, “it might even alter the conditions under which they live”(287). Howe’s satire demonstrates to the audience that if the ballots were opened to women there would not be pandemonium and women will not “come out of the voting booths and be led away by policemen, and put into ambulances while they are fainting and weeping, half laughing, half crying and having fits”(289).The Voting booths would provide opportunity for women to voice there concerns and women’s issues. The ability to vote would not be a departure from there societal role as the head of the household but be part of their duty so they could voice the concerns of family life and domestic issues strengthening the
Women’s AFL deserves the same publicity as men’s AFL. In the feature article ‘Playing for Keeps’ in the West Australian is a carefully constructed article aimed at all people involved in a sport to persuade them that women’s AFL should be as big as the men’s. the main points the journalist rises are that women don’t want to be like men all they want is to be able to play the game on a scale like men have, the other idea explored is because of the low publicity of women’s AFL it is finically difficult for them to use AFL as full time employment. The journalist accomplishes his/her goal of persuading you that women’s AFL deserves more recognition by appealing to our heart or morals through the use of anecdotal evidence and interviews, the article
Furthermore the employment of nouns such as “feminism” (line 7), “woman” (line 23) and “daughter” (line 30), which all are hyponyms of the female sex or even “young men” (line 47) and “sons” (line 61) which belong to the semantic field of the male sex create cohesion for listeners. In doing so, Watson has targeted every age and form of gender specifically implying that they all are affected by gender inequality. The varied use of different nouns – especially ‘son’ and ‘daughter’ to describe the gender inequality add a sense of vulnerability and innocence where, the audience is expected to uphold morals and act upon the issue. The stylistic feature of morphological patterning is employed throughout the speech. Nominalisation, the process in which the use of a verb, adjective or an adverb is transformed into a noun is
