As the audience, can see, Adichie is setting up her speech, by showing what the past connotation of the word “feminists” was and what the negative reaction it came from men. You would expect Adichie to give examples of how the past connotation of the word “feminists” is not true, instead Adichie shows why that Nigerian journalist would call feminists unhappy, with no husband. Adichie does the exact opposite by complaining the whole thirty minutes of the ted talk and talking about how horrible men are, and putting women on a pedestal above them, as women can do no wrong. While Adichie gives a various examples of the unequal treatment of both men and women, Adichie only show a few examples of the unequal treatment of men, like always being pressured to be more masculine especially with money and trying to be the dominant one. When first listening to this, this was shocking to the audience, because for once the feelings of men was considered and how pressure is put on them to prove how masculine they can be, or else they are defined as feminine. However, this was short lived, as Adichie gave countless examples of women be
"We have met here today to dicuss our rights and wrongs, civial and political, and not, as some have supposed, to go into the detail of social life alone." She strarts off her speech by telling the audience she isnt here to talk aboutthe minor parts of the whole women rights movement, but instead is going to talk about something very important and major to the womens right movement. The civil and political rights of women. In this she makes a bold move and steps out of what most
Pathos is important in this speech when you are trying to change others views on women’s rights. Hillary uses emotional appeals to the audience when she describes them as wives, mothers, sisters, and daughters; referring them to women in our own lives; evoking the listener to imagine if their loved one were in the same position. Clinton talks about the appalling desecrations such as gendercide. Clinton states the demands of women that remain silent. By using repetitive language, she starts all the statements with “It is a violation of human rights when….”.All eight statements are relevant examples of different scenarios that happen to women around the world. “It is a violation of human rights
Overall, Hillary Clinton exhibited characteristics of a great public speaker when giving her speech on “Women’s Rights are Human’s Rights” to the United Nations audience in Beijing. She was confident and persuasive and included the key components of both verbal and nonverbal communication. Lastly, she gained the audience’s attention with her use of emotion and established
I think the whole book is revolved around the Acquired needs theory too. This is because this theory is the need for achievement, power, and affiliation. Many business-affiliated women strive for such qualifications. Sandberg’s book is how to achieve such goals, also how it is okay for women to be at the top of a company. As many things change in the world; the way people see women leaders have changed too. This book is about how it’s okay for women to run company’s not just households.
Lean In: Women, Work and The Will To Lead, by Sheryl Sandberg, addresses how women can achieve professional achievement and overcome the lack of leadership progress that has been absent over the past few years. Sandberg uses personal experience, research and humor to examine the choices that working women make everyday. She argues that women can achieve professional goals while still being happy within their personal lives. She argues this by going into detail about what risks to take, how to pursue certain professional goals and how to overcome struggles such as balancing a family and a career. All through Lean In, Sandberg uses the fourth dimension of interpersonal effects through a Narrative to show her indicated stance on gender
Given these points, both women agree that there is a problem with equality in our society. They understand that not as many women are being recognized and are in positions of power. However, both women do not address the same reasons why. As Sandberg puts the reason for the lack of female leadership in corporate jobs and careers is because the lack of motivation that comes from the women in the workforce. This is so from fear of risking stability of finance, work, and home-life or contentment with them all. Hooks instead believes that our society that is dominated by white supremacist capitalist patriarchy only allows for certain white privileged females such as Sandberg to rise to power, enabling her to push a faux feminism agenda that only
Every speaker was humble even though they have this amazing world changing technology. If they went up there and were prideful there would be this disconnect and your message wouldn’t be heard. Danielle has this high up position and has tons of experience but states she still has more to learn. It put her and the audience on the same level.
Watson uses the rhetorical appeal of ethos and pathos to convince her audience to fight against gender inequality by joining her campaign, HeForShe.
Throughout this speech, several rhetorical devices are used, which make the speech more effective. Many people would agree that the most effective quote from this speech is “If there is one message that echoes forth from this conference, let it be that human rights are women’s rights and women’s rights are human rights once and for all” (Clinton par.26). This quote is a sententia, which was properly used because this statement is so powerful. Clinton uses a rhetorical question in her speech to increase the attention of her audience and emphasize how important this conference is in creating change for the future. Clinton states, “Wasn’t it after all -- after the women’s conference in Nairobi ten years ago that the world focused for the first
In class we were shown a recording of the speech, “A call to men”. The first thing I noticed was the title, which made me immediately assume it was going to be a female speaker that was going to speak about feminism; or something along those lines. To see a man giving the speech grabbed my attention instantly. The man giving the speech was Tony Porter, and his audience was mostly women, who made me think, “Is this guy going to be giving a speech about feminism?” While listening to his speech I felt guilty for being quick to judge, because his speech was actually about growing up as a male, and being masculine is today’s society. While Tony Porter was giving his speech, he brought up stories that without a doubt every guy in our class could relate to that left many of us saying, “Wow”.
This empowers those that hear this speech to help the cause because he states that he is supporting this cause with all of those that choose to join him. Not only do women need equality in their healthcare, they will also need healthcare for their future children. If a
Sandler’s overall approach, especially its deep involvement with legislation, denotes a liberal feminist approach. From a liberal feminist perspective, a main purpose of feminism is to form a world in which people are evaluated for their individual characteristics without regard to sex. Sandler tackles on a major aspect of life in advocating for women’s full inclusion into education, and does this work through the system – typical of liberal feminists compared with many other feminist groups. This aligns with the understanding that liberal feminists believe much of the social problems can be meaningfully addressed through the government, with aims to bring about social changes. Thus, members adhering to this approach tend to form groups like the National Organization for Women and Women’s Equity Action League, groups which attempt to advance a broad range of feminist issues primarily through education, legislation, and litigation. They often point to barriers of discrimination and prejudice preventing women from taking an equal place in the power structures of
In the article “Lean In: What would you do if you weren’t afraid,” Sandberg modernizes feminism for the woman of today. Sandberg addresses many points of gender inequality that are still present in today’s society. She urges woman to not fall into passive gender roles, but rather, to be “Ambitious”. Her goal is that young women just entering the work force will not only continue, but also aim high. One point that
