Summary, Reaction, and Analysis Paper #1 Iron -Jawed Angels Iron-Jawed Angels tells the true story of a very strong and determined group of young ladies lead by Alice Paul and Lucy Burns. These ladies put their lives on the line to fight for women’s right to vote. After years and years of hard work and some jail time, Alice and her followers convinced President Wilson to supporting the suffrage amendment. On Aug. 26, 1920, the Susan B. Anthony Amendment becomes law, and 20 million American women win the right to vote. Alice worked hard and fought a long battle for all women living in the United States.
How far do the sources suggest that the actions of Emily Davison at the Derby in 1913 helped to advance the cause of women’s suffrage? (20 marks) Source 10 is an article from the paper 'The Times,' a paper known for being right wing (conservative) at the time. It briefly explains to us what happened at the derby, then goes on to what will happen from then on, briefly once again. It is said that the actions of Emily Davidson were 'desperate' and that it was a 'mad notion.' Straight away from these extracts form the first two sentences we can catch the tone of the article and where 'The Times' stand with this event.
Lauren Billings Mrs. Hall English 1301 30 October 2012 Condoleezza Rice at RNC Condoleezza Rice’s speech at the Republican National Convention on August 29, 2012 helps signify the challenges that the United States has faced and asks the question, “Where does America stand?” (par.3-4). Throughout the speech, Rice appeals to the audience through emotion by stating the country’s melancholy past with information about the four attacks done by terrorists on September 11, 2001, to the present day’s aggravating ordeals with K-12 education systems. The emotion she inserts had been lacking from speeches spoke the same night, such as Paul Ryan’s, which was good, but couldn’t withstand the amazing feedback Rice received, says Amy Davidson in The New Yorker blog, (par. 1). Rice was also credible in each topic by applying logical appeals and facts about the economy; even though she doesn’t use more than one statistic, Rice’s speech was knowledgeable and in general an unfathomable success.
10 Steps of Critical Thinking Name Course School What are the issues and conclusions? The memo (R. Fabowlus, personal communication, January 30, 2014) regards whether the union SAG-AFTRA should support Eugenia Glover publicly in a lawsuit that she filed against FOX News for interfering with her ability to work, and also for wrongful termination against Al Jazeera America (AJAM). Browne & Keeley (2012) explain that sometimes the author of a document will mention the issue during their introduction or even in the title of the writing. In the case of the memo, not only does Fabowlus’ (2014) phrase, “You wanted to know if the union should publicly support the union member in publicizing their legal case(s)” state the issue in her introduction, but she also restates and alludes to it repeatedly throughout the document. The conclusion of the memo is also stated plainly at the end of the document.
Written in 1917, when the U.S.A. entered World War I and men left the country in order to fight in Europe, “A Jury of Her Peers” deals with women power. Three years before the ratification of the Nineteenth Amendment which gave full suffrage right to women, the author, Susan Glaspell assesses the increase of women independence through images and symbolism. Through Mrs. Wright, the supposed murderer of her husband, Susan Glaspell represents American women struggling to gain independence. As Mrs. Wright’s story is told, parallels can be made to the steps that women went through to become aware of their power. First of all, Mrs. Wright’s life and environment reflect the ones of a typical American woman at the beginning of the twentieth century.

State St Trenton, NJ, 08608 firstname.lastname@example.org A Compulsory Review of Quixotic Gun Control Prepared by NA Distributed February 23, 2012 Prepared for Ms. Catherine Peck TESC English Comp Mentor Abstract Few events in life demand your immediate attention like gun violence. These events are always shocking and bring about deep emotions that can take us on quixotic crusades, resulting in ineffective and restrictive regulations. Universal evidence and correlations have long been offered as proof of the mantra that more guns mean more violence and fewer guns, therefore, mean less violence (Godwin 281). While the hearts and souls of the regulatory author are well placed, all too often the resulting debate is rooted in erroneous statistics and unrepresentative comparisons. To illustrate Senator Dianne Feinstein introduced Assault Weapons Ban legislation that would ban any weapon with a grip on the premise they are too easy to get and used too often for bad (Feinstein).
Linda Chavez, a vocal supporter of conservative causes writes passionately about her view of the revision of the “Amethyst Initiative” debate on whether the drinking age should be lowered from twenty-one, and how college professors agree to this matter. Chavez debates and argues reliable sources in her essay “Redefining the Problem Wont Make It Go Away” which was published in the online journal townhall.com on August 22, 2008. This essay displays her negative beliefs of this argument, she is a firm fighter for what she believes in and this essay shows that. On the other hand, Radley Balko a writer who published his essay “Amethyst Initiative’s Debate on Drinking a Welcome Alternative to Fanaticism” to FoxNews.com on August 25th 2008 shortly after Chavez’s essay was released. Balko is as opinionated and feisty in his beliefs as Chavez, as he argues his thought on the reconsideration of the “Amethyst Initiative.” How similar Balko and Chavez are we could not have picked two better essays to compare.
Justus Liebig Universität Fachbereich 03: Sozial- und Kulturwissenschaften Vorlesung: Soziologische Theorien, Montag 12:00-14:00 Dozentin: Pr. John Ahrens Sommer Semester 2011 The Modern Woman Breaking Social Categorization An analysis of the women’s football. Zugestellt von: Esther Nduku Matrikel Nummer: 7000274 Anschrift: Lothar str 24 4. Semester, Moderne Fremdsprache Kultur und Wirtschaft E-Mail: email@example.com Although diverse feminist theories that have evolved over the time may have different perceptions of the term woman, they all have a common goal and that is to eliminate oppression of the woman. Over the time the woman has tried to get over social and political bound barriers so as to reestablish her identity, build her own image, thought and world without the common clichés of having to be reliant on a man.
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.
