During the “Speech to the Troops at Tilbury,” Queen Elizabeth I showed a tone of inspiration during a time of great doubt, a flawless diction, and a syntax structure that showed great emphasis on each statement that summoned the passion out of her people. Tone is the most important attribute to have in a speech and the queen nailed it on the forehead. During a time when all hope was lost she showed great inspiration and determination that rejuvenated her people. Powerful statements that would make “tyrants fear” and give “strength and safeguard in the loyal hearts” of her people, to annihilate any invaders such as “Parma or Spain” and to send a message to “any prince of Europe.” She was assuring that her people would not go out without a fight and that the English would come out on top of the power struggle between the colonies of Europe. Firmness was shown and the leadership of a king was brought out of the queen and that earned loads of respect from her people and they figured out that this woman was not one to be taken lightly.
The love of her people was her motivation. Her volition came of the need to protect her subjects, and be their beacon of strength and hope. She forged a way that was shut, by power of will and breaking down any barriers in her way. Mary Queen of Scotts was believed of some to be the rightful ruler of England, as Elizabeth was an illegitimate child by a mistress of her father, King Henry VIII, who was the founder of the Protestant church, for the reason that Catholicism would not allow him to divorce his wife. Elizabeth was criticized, but held steady her ground.
The three space break sums up everything she stated before in her speech that she will not take a husband or have any children because she knows she is what’s best for England. Queen Elizabeth I made some very good points in her speech and this made the speech effective. One point was when she thanked Parliament for their good zeal and loving care towards her and the whole state of the country. And that when her life is over she would like for a marble stone to show that a Queen, having reigned such a time, lived and died a virgin. Another good point was that she trusts God who has preserved and led
A) The picture was a symbol of the American spirit. 3. What did Mrs. Madison mean when she told her sister, “all the advantage in war may not be taken”? Explain thoroughly • Mrs. Madison told her sister that all advantages of war must not be taken, the reason why she said this was because it gave her the motive to trap the White House. She had one of her faithful servants to stand guard with a canon.
Her work in the battle field was often dangerous and grueling. Barton displayed great courage and did not deny any request for assistance near the front lines which were deemed unsafe for women. Barton was determined to serve, regardless of personal cost. While in Europe barton was contacted by Officials from the International Red Cross (IRC) after hearing of her efforts during U.S. Civil War. It was at this time Clara Barton realized how much the U.S. would benefit by an organization such as IRC.
Women wanted the same working rights as men, and they fought hard for it. Suffragettes stoped their campaign of violence and supported the government and its war effort in every way. The work done by women in the First World War was to be vital for Britain's war effort. Even though women gained the right to vote shortly after the war, its argued that the war wasn’t really the cause of giving women this right. After all, in countries such as New Zealand (1893), Australia (1901), Finland (1906) or Norway (1913) women got the vote before the war began, whereas others such as Denmark (1915), Iceland (1915), Holland (1917) or Sweden (1919) gave it to women during the war without being involved in it.
He was also truly touched by a recent rally and appeal to United State senators, in which she moved to abolish the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy in the states(her speech can be found at: http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/video/lady-gaga-senate-repeal-dont-ask-dont-tell-message-11664111) In Germanotta’s appeal to the senators she says,” It is my belief that no one person is more valuable than another.” This line really solidifies her passion for equality and equal rights and really spoke to me. During her speech, she handled herself very professionally and it was hard to imagine her as the music risk-taker that I, and most other teens, have come to love. Most people in my generation remember when they first heard Lady Gaga. It was most likely her first hit song, “Just Dance”, on the radio. Since its release in 2008, Germanotta has become known worldwide.
Kelly Kolb English-111-760 Eric Roe June 28th, 2011 A Woman Registering for Selective Service is Not Necessary Changing the law to mandate that women register for selective service for the military after so many years is an important issue that gets many different responses. After reading three very different sources on the topic of women in combat I developed a strong opinion, but none provoked me like Anne Quindlen’s essay “Uncle Sam and Aunt Samantha.” Quindlen suggest that to end a gender war women should be required to register for selective services to produce equality and fairness. Brian Turner writes an emotional poem regarding female soldiers and sexual assault and Mary Eberstadt’s essay is aimed to address the issue of mothers
Aung San Suu Kyi is willing to face so many dangers in attempt to accomplish her goals. Part of the reason she is willing to put the dangers aside is because of her father being a freedom fighter as well. “I could not as my father’s daughter remain indifferent to all that was going on,” said The Lady in a speech in Rangoon on August 26, 1988. The Lady knows what the dangers of her opposition to the Burmese government are, however she is willing to face those dangers in light of them. That takes courage, especially when facing a harsh dictatorship that does not allow free speech.
The Nineteenth Amendment gave women the right to vote and they were unwilling to give up the jobs they took over for soldiers fighting the war. In a symbolic show of emancipation, women bobbed their hair, gave up wearing corsets, and started to smoke and drink openly. Fitzgerald shows the new demeanor of women particularly well in The Great Gatsby. The novel shows women of all classes who are breaking out of the molds society has placed them into. For instance, Myrtle, wishes to climb the social ladder, and is determined to do so at all costs.
