Women athletes have made huge strides since Title IX but there is still room for improvement. The media coverage of female athletes needs to change for all the young girls who look up to these female athletes as role models and the mass media needs to take a more active role and cover male and female sports equally. (Will Anything Change, http://femaleathletes.wordpress.com/, May 5, 2008) The text was directed mostly toward women athlete community, while speaking to any woman who has had experience with the culture of the athlete community also; targeting male and female to understand the discriminating
She fills her troops with a will to survive for their families, gives them motivation that they will be rewarded with the outcome of victory, and also fills them with patriotism which is the inspiration to protect their country. After reading this speech out loud it gave me a better perspective on how the Queen’s tone plays a big role in filling her men with courage and inspiration. She wants to touch her troops emotionally and make them feel connected in a way that will inspire the troops to fight for their queen and the country they represent. She states that she is “nothing but a weak, feeble woman” but follows it by stating “I have the heart and stomach of a king”. To me that line is filled with a great amount of emotion, if I were one of her troops I would be greatly inspired and ready to take on any obstacle in which the act of war may
CONFLICT ANAYLSIS OF STEEL MAGNOLIAS: CLIMATES, GENDER & POWER STRUGGLES Jason Striker NAU – GCC ABSTRACT “…the movie is primarily a celebration of the love, strength, and compassion of six Louisianian women which by examining the conflictual climates and how they are mediated, along with the differences in gendered conflict styles, while lastly understanding the power exchanges within relationships will allow us to relate these strategies to our own lives. We will see that although the relationships in this movie are steadfast and loving, they are also challenged by events that trigger conflicts that bring about introspection, growth, death, but above all an increase in the quality of the relationships making them as tough as steel magnolias.” Keywords: Power, gendered, conflictual, climates, introspection, struggle Steel Magnolias is the story of six small-town southern women who care deeply about each other and accompany one another through the conflicts that affect our human condition. At the heart of the story is M'LynnEatenton and her sweetly effervescent but diabetic daughter Shelby. The mother and daughter love each other, yet struggle for control of Shelby's life. Despite warnings from doctors that pregnancy might involve complications that could be life-threatening, Shelby decides - much to M'Lynn's chagrin - to have a child.
In the story Their Eyes Were Watching God the narrator immediately establishes an underlying difference between men and women in the opening paragraphs. While men fail to really reach for their dreams, women can control their wills and choose their dreams. The metaphorical “ships” suggest that regardless of their ultimate success or failure, men dream of great accomplishments of working and changing their outward worlds. Even if the ship comes in, it still begins as an external goal. For women, such as the main character Janie, pulling in to her horizon shifts the field of action to her interior goals.
Abigail is well aware of the heavy regard for herself that she has bred into John, and thus uses this pre-established respect to heighten her own position to inform him. Her rhetorical appeal to her prestige in the eyes of her son paves the way for motiving her boy, as she stresses her importance to him, and thus the importance of her will. She also reminds him of his submission to her in past, using it as a tool to exhibit her importance to him in future as well as present matters. Although her self-glorifying approach may seem to simply due to unnecessary self-exaltation, her use of this rhetorical strategy is simply to create an effective voice for the advisement of her boy, as she obviously cares for him deeply and feels she knows best for him in his further conquests. Throughout her letter to John, Abagail Adams employs constant appeals to the importance of knowledge in her boy’s life; as she readily uses her position as his mother to encourage promote the significance of learning.
The peaceful campaigning of the suffragists’ was a key factor in women receiving the vote. The suffragists’ started the whole route of women gaining the vote; they were the ever moving force behind the movement. However historian Martin Pugh suggests that “Suffragists would probably have done better to have made common cause with all unenfranchised men and women from the start and thereby they might have extended their appeal” because all men had not yet received the vote it was argued that women should not receive the franchise when it was not fully given to all men. However there were other contributing factors leading up to 1918 and women gaining the vote. They include the work of the suffragettes’ who caused chaos and grabbed the spotlight away from the suffragists’ after a group of women decided it was time to make a militant stand.

She proves that in her eyes Obama is the best candidate for president and can easily convince others of her opinion with the use of ethos, pathos and logos. Without these appeals the readers wouldn’t be able to built a trust for her to prove that she is a credible writer and her opinion about Obama is valuable. Showing that she is credible helps the audience connect with Toni Morrison and gives them a feeling of
