The book I chose is ʻMichelle, A Biographyʼ written by Liza Mundy. In this biography, the reader is given a chance to learn about one of the most influential women in the twenty-first century. Using her own interview with Michelle Obama, family members and over a hundred others, Mundy, a Washington Post journalist, offers the story of a three-dimensional, living, breathing, and feeling individual who is different from the flat characterizations that accompany public life. Mundy shows us Michelleʼs early influences, her strong personality and her powerful, loving and effective partnership and marriage with her husband. The book ends during the early stages of Obamaʼs presidential campaign and touches on the shift away from Obama pointing out her husbandʼs domestic failings to someone who helped tell his story and continue to introduce him to the American public.
As the Industrial Revolution set in between 1750 to 1850, many families required a fortune in trade, and rose up into the aristocracy, as shown through the Bingley and the Lucas family in the text. Women were still considered unequal to men, and their only way of gaining a fortune was to marry above their social class. However this way of life for women was changing with the rise of reformists and feminists, such as Wollstonecraft, she believed that women should speak out and think independently of men. By 1793 Britain was again at war with France, and as Napoleon’s fleet waited across the channel, the local militia marched back and forth, camped and danced at balls. The army had grown from thirteen thousand men at the outbreak of war to two hundred thousand in 1807.
Michelle Obama Rhetorical Essay First Lady, Michelle Obama, at the Democratic National Convention gives us a speech. In which she emphasizes that she and her family are no different than any average American family and they have went through many hardships similar to the typical American family.

She adopts a passionate tone in order to convince people to reelect her husband again in the next election by speaking towards Democrats in America First Lady Obama begins her speech by illuminating the fact that she and Barack have went through many of the same adversities and battles that regular American families have been through too.

"A government that is big enough to give you all you want is big enough to take it all away." Barry Goldwater 1909 - 1998 Subject: FW: Father & daughter conversation A Father Daughter Talk A young woman was about to finish her first year of college. Like so many others her age, she considered herself to be a very liberal Democrat, and was very much in favor of the redistribution of wealth.

Janice Abrams Instructor: Kyle Long English Composition 271-Section 506 28 October 2009 The Wife Of Bath’s Prologue and Tale: Feminist versus Anti-Feminist Chaucer’s Wife of Bath is a fictional text that identifies factual ideas supporting feminism and the position of women. Though being aware, the text is written in a much earlier time period, the Wife of Bath’s ideas still reflect and describe how women are perceive in the 21st century today. The Wife herself, gives us her experience on her authority and power over her husband which she is very proud of, during the prologue. Which then ties into her Tale about the Knight and receiving the answer of what women most desire. I think Chaucer was trying to voice his opinion about feministic ways through a female speaker, hence Alisoun (the Wife), though contradicted his ideas in both the Prologue and Tale.
Low crime, full employment a benign welfare state and trusted systems of expert knowledge: scientists, doctors and politicians. These have been counter poised to an era of unstable dysfunctional institutions, unreliable and anti –social behaviour and a collapse in expert knowledge systems and their simple dichotomies.

She wrote him a letter that stated “You must know again my reluctance to marry, my feeling that I shatter thereby chances in work which means most to me… Please let us not interfere with the others’ work or play… In this connection I may have to keep some place where I can go to be myself, now and then, for I cannot guarantee to endure at all times the confinements of even an attractive cage” (Brain Pickings -). She believed in equal responsibilities between the pair, and refused the bride’s promise to obey her husband. She had a modern view on marriage, pushing the envelope for women in relationships. Amelia conveyed her wariness of the entire situation, and laid out her expectations, including her requirement for privacy and respect for her career and accomplishments.
Why were women given the vote in 1918? In 1918, women had finally gained the right to vote, after 68 long and hard years of campaigning and rebelling they finally got the vote they wanted. The women had tried everything like campaigning, getting them selves arrested, using the media and many more things were done. However, there were a couple of things that they did which really helped them get the right to vote and they were the fact that they helped the men in World War I, like loading the bombs shells with explosives and tidying the bomb shelters. Also I thought that the Suffragists played a vital role in getting the rights for women to vote because they proved to the men that they could protest and campaign without using violence or breaking the law, unlike the Suffragettes, who resorted to violence when they wanted their way or when they wanted to be heard.
