"Women's Rights Are Human Rights" Rhetorical Analysis ETHOS
I would like to thank the Secretary General for inviting me to be a part of this important United Nations Fourth Confrence on Women.

Earlier today, I participated in a World Health Organization forum... Tommorow, I will attend a gathering of the United Nations Development Fund for Women.

Over the past 25 years, I have worked persistently on issues relating to women,children, and families.

Over the past two and a half years, I've had the oppurtunity to learn more about the challenges facing women in my own country and around the world. Pathos(Carmin)
"It is a violation of human rights when babies are denied food, or drowned or suffocated, or their spines broken, simply because they are born girls."

"It is a violation of human rights when women and girls are sold into the slavery of prostitution for human greed-and the kinds of reasons that are used to justify this practice should no longer be tolerated."

"It is a violation of human rights when women are doused with gasoline, set on fire, and burned to death because their marriage dowries are deemed to small."

It is a vilation of human rights when individual women are raped in their own communities and when thousands of women are subjected to rape as a tactic or prize of war."

"It is a violation of human rights when a leading cause of death worldwide among women ages 14 to 44 is the violence they are subjected to in their own homes."

"It is a volation of human rights when young girls are brutalized by the painful and degrading practice of genital mutilation."

"It is a vilation of human rights when women are denied the right to plan their own familes ." Summary(Morgan): Central Idea (Carmin):
The central idea of Hillary Clinton’s speech was to establish that women should be treated the same as every other human. Her goal is to put a stop to the unequal treatment of women all over the world. She addresses many accounts of evidence that are continuously occurring all over the world. Throughout her speech she provides examples of ethos, kairos, logos and pathos in order to support her central claim. Her main goal of this speech was to appeal to the audience and convince them that this unequal treatment is a huge deal and needs to be addressed all over the world. About the Author(Jennifer): Kairos(John): Logos (Jennifer):
Hillary Clinton has always been in the shadow of her husband, Bill Clinton.

Once Bill was impeached, she started doing wonderful things for people and even ran for president. Let me be clear. Freedom means the right of people to assemble, organize, and debate openly. It means respecting the views of those who may disagree with the views or their government. It means not taking citizens away from their loved ones and jailing them, mistreating them, or denying them their freedom or dignity because of the peaceful expression of their ideas or opinions.

Now it is the time to act on behalf of women everywhere. If we take bold steps to better the lives of women, we will be taking bold steps to better the lives of children and families too. Families rely on mothers and wives for emotional support and care. Families rely on women for labor in the home. And increasingly, everywhere, families rely on women for income needed to raise healthy children and care for other relatives.

As long as discrimination and inequities remain so commonplace everywhere in the world, as long as girls and women are valued less, fed less, fed last, overworked, underpaid, not schooled, subjected to violence in and outside their homes -- the potential of the human family to create a peaceful, prosperous world will not be realized. Pathos(Carmin)
"I want to speak up for mothers who are fighting for good schools, sae neighborhoods, clean air, and clean airwaves; for older women, some of them widows, who find that, after raising their families, their skills and life experiences are not valued in the marketplace; for women who are working all night as nurses, hotel clerks, or fast food chefs so that they can be at home during the day with their children; and for women everywhere who simply don't have time to do everything they are called upon to do each and every day." Speaking to you today, I speak for them, just as each of us speaks for women around the world who are denied the chance to go to school, or see a doctor, or won property, or have a say about the direction of their lives, simply because they are women. The truth is that most women around the world work both inside and outside the home, usually by necessity.
