Rhetoric in Speech Project
Title: Equal Rights For Women
Speaker: Shirley Chisholm
Date of Speech: May 21, 196 held in New York
Historical Context: In the 1960's Chisholm was not only the first African American woman in Congress, but she was also the first African American woman to run for presidency. She claimed she was discriminated more for being a woman compared to her race. It was unacceptable at the time for women to be managers, administrators, members of Congress, and leaders. The majority of women had positions lower than men when it came to jobs.
Title: Women's Rights are Human Rights
Speaker: Hillary Clinton
Date of Speech: September 5, 1995 held in Beijing, China
Historical Context: It took 150 years after the signing of the Declaration for women to vote and 72 years for for the Women's suffrage to be achieved. In America, women are now accepted for having higher positions such as lawyers, leaders, policy makers, and etc. Clinton's main purpose was to bring equality between men and women in China along with other parts of the world.
Chisholm explicated the problem to the audience well and encouraged women to speak up about equal rights.
The audience was towards men.
The rewards that could be gained from the speech is for the equal rights amendment to take action.
Clinton's speech explains how women in today's society are more respected and presents this to China to show equality between men and women is still possible.
Audience was women who wanted less discrimination.
The rewards that could be gained from this speech is equality in other parts of the world.
The speech is valuable because she explains the importance of women and the roles they take on in society.
- Clinton -
"We come together in fields and factories, village markets, living rooms and board rooms."
"playing with our children in the park.."
"there is far more that unites us than divides us."
Chisholm's speech does create strong emotions because there were many people such as herself being discriminated because of gender.
"...when a young woman graduates from college...she is likely to have a frustrating and demeaning experience ahead of her."
"...women are different. They do not have executive ability, orderly minds, stability, leadership skills, and they are too emotional."
Clinton's speech does evoke emotions because although women in America are less discriminated in our generation in comparison to before, other cultures or countries such as China have it differently.
"If women have a chance to work and earn as full equal partners in society, their families will flourish."
"..much of the work we do is not valued."
Both speakers incorporated logos, ethos, and pathos in their speeches. The speakers included ethos because Clinton and Chisholm are strong supporters of women's rights and have been a part of the United States government making them credible. Emotional appeal is added with persuasive techniques such as personal/ previous experiences and logos is used because both rhetors applied statistics on women/ world population.
