A Modest Proposal In Thoughts on Peace in an Air Raid, Woolf uses many stylistic syntax and diction to argue that women to help fight and help the men at the war front. In the beginning, Woolf uses rhetorical questioning to make women to contribute to the war effort. She asks, “How far can she fight for free freedom without firearms? By making arms, or clothes or food. But there is another way of fighting for freedom without arms: we can fight with our mind” (936).

In spite of the international awareness about this problem and the declared willingness of the states to fight gender-violence, young girls and women continue to serve as the target of violence. Authors Kim Gandy, Leonard Pitts, and Erica Goode go beyond the surface of the problems and explore the shocking reality behind violence against women, utilizing statics and real life accounts to submerge the reader into the uncomfortable reality of the society women live in today. Overall, the most effective articles of the whole unit utilize pathos and logos, presenting daunting statics and facts as well as real examples to create an effective and convincing argument for the reader.

As to be expected, this thesis opened up a multitude of hugely controversial sub-topics, and in dealing with such controversial and heavy subject matter, Woolf utilized a writing style and used to her advantage the ‘liberties and licences of a novelist’ that allowed her more literary freedom. She did this by exploiting the narrative voice of her invented character of ‘Mary Beaton, Mary Seaton, or Mary Carmichael’ to lead us through the elegantly meandering journey that was her stream of consciousness. In writing in this semi-fictional narrative style, Woolf was able to merge deeply political, and philosophical views expressed in a partially illusory voice, which afforded her the freedom to subtly uncover ‘some nugget of truth’ and put across her powerful message. In a time where women writers’, and indeed women, were not afforded the liberties of equality and freedom of speech. A time where female writers’ had to be guarded, and confined, in expressing their opinions, the narrative voice, ‘Call me Mary Beaton, Mary Seaton…’ aided the conveying of Woolf’s argument, as it engaged with women on a more personal level, through making her character a universally identifiable ‘every-woman’, rather than an individual displaying her anger towards the system of patriarchy.

Baghdad Burning: Girl Blog from Iraq discusses the war in Iraq and daily life in the perspective from an Arab girl, “Riverbend.” Women throughout history of all races and ethnicities have dealt with hardships or oppressions at large; however, the United States has gained a false pretense as to the “oppressions” Arab women have faced before the war. By grouping all the countries in the Middle East together and thinking the problems and customs were identical, United States has gained false view of what women in Iraq are really going through.
You don’t know what you talking about.” From this statement you can tell that my tone is angered and frustrated. Dialogue is a really important part of an essay. Its sets the tone of how a story is going to turn out. Brody drew me in with the revelation that girls are very manipulative in getting boys to achieve goals beyond their means.

The appropriation of dystopian symbols in texts is a key way writers and directors get across their personal, contextual message. The burning of women with her books in Fahrenheit 451 symbolises, through the biblical and historical illusion of witch burning, that society finds free thinking and education an act of heracy. This symbol is appropriated in equilibrium with the burning of marry, is the biblical illusion of the innocent virgin marry.
