In addition, Tannen suggests an example where women can be simply judged based on their titles - “Ms.” and “Mrs.” Tannen adds on by referring to Ralph Fasold’s research that it is actually the male that is marked. She writes, “Fasold points out that girls are born with fully female bodies, while boys are born with modified female bodies.” Tannen admits that she herself who is writing about the inequality between genders could be seen as a feminist, yet doubted that anyone would put that label on Fasold. Tannen concludes that she is unhappy about women not having the freedom to be unmarked as men had. Some days she just wants to get dressed and go about her business.

She uses this method to show the selfishness of the husbands and men who have wives do almost everything for them. The effect of this method is to make her ideas stronger and stand out.

In her speech, “Equal Rights for Women,” she uses two rhetorical devices, one being repetition, and the other being the pathos appeal. In the last part of the speech, Chisholm uses repetition, which means to repeat a word or phrase, to emphasize what needs to be heard. Another rhetoric device that is used in the speech is the pathos appeal, which according to Praxis, it can be defined as, “an emotion used to sway the audience” (Clark 82). In the speech, “Equal Rights for Women,” Chisholm uses repetition and the pathos appeal to convince us that she is correct and that women should be treated as equal as men.
