Gender Issues
In Education
In Sports
In the Workplace
The article "London's Olympics: The Games that changed everything and nothing" reflects back on last year's Olympics in terms of what changed for women's sports.
The 2012 Olympics were the most equal games by gender that they have ever been. For the first time, every country that participated had a female athlete and some countries even had more women than men.
However, some inequalities remain: Men have more medals to win and some events still don't include women, such as canoeing, even though they claim to.

Samantha Bresnahan, a journalist for CNN, is the speaker.
The occasion is looking back at the equality of the Olympics a year later in preparation for the upcoming winter and 2016 summer Olympics.
The audience is American adults curious about how the Olympics have changed.
The author used the Rhetorical Mode of informational analysis to inform the audience of the subject.
The subject is how the Olympics have and have not changed in terms of gender equality.
The tone is hopeful. The article ends with a quote about what a "fantastic start" the Games have made towards equality.
Malala Yousafzai speaks for gender equality, especially education rights for everyone.
Recently won the International Children's Peace Prize for risking her life for a great cause.
She was able to receive the award from 2011 Nobel Peace Prize winner Tawakkol Karman on September 6th, 2013.
May be in the running for the Nobel Peace Prize award.
Awarded with a cash prize. 100,000 euros, equaling up to 133,000 US dollars. The cash prize will be paying for Malala's cause.
Speaker: ABC.net/au
Occasion: Malala Yousafzai won a peace prize
Audience: Readers who are interested in current affairs.
Purpose: For the audience to be informed with Malala's recent prize.
Subject: Malala Yousafzai
Tone: The author of this article was very neutral. Because it was an article stating specific events, they were not able to speak their opinions.
Rhetorical Appeals


A lot of the article was just straight facts about what happened at the Olympics, who went, and so forth.
Most of the emotional moments were introduced through quotes expressing anger over how parts of the Games still aren't fair and hope over how it could continue to improve.
Striving for equality in the Olympics is positive ethics.
Women only make 77 cents out of every dollar a man earns.
The gender wage gap is lower in the United States (U.S) than in many other countries. The problem is that it has barely changed from the past.
The difference between men and women 's contributions to housework have lessened over the years but women still tend to do much more housework than men.

Occasion :

Audience :

Purpose :

Subject :

Tone :
The speaker is Mary Brinton, a Professor of Sociology at Harvard University
She wrote this article for those who are curious about gender issues and/or check the Harvard blog.
She wrote this to inform the readers about this issue.
She talks about inequalities between men and women regarding their work, both professional and personal.
She writes this in a professional manner. She stays unbiased through the article.
The occasion is confronting the issues regarding gender issues/roles.
In the Media
Women have a history of being objectified in the media, and it still goes on today. A common thought is that women are objectified by their pictures in media. These pictures depict a scantily clad, slim, and often unnaturally beautiful ideal.
This is a huge example of gender roles in the social network, however, female objectification is not limited to this. Women are in fact reduced to being the "object matter" in many forms of media, while men too often are put in the role of "subject matter".

Joy Goh-Mah, blogger/editorial journalist for the Huffington Post

Addressing the sexual objectification of women

Readers or feminists looking for more information on objectification
o give readers a better understanding of the gender typing that goes on in the media, besides only sexual issues

The objectification of females in the media

the tone of this article was very informative
Rhetorical Appeals
Logos: I believe the author focused on logos. She states many facts. She brings up many topics about the differences between men and women during a day of work such as wage, achievements, and workload.
Ethos- The article came from a reliable news source, ABC. Giving it credibility.
Logos- All the facts given from the article was from the event that happened on September 6th.
Pathos- Because it was written about a recent event, the author was not able to state their opinion. It was very neutral throughout the article.

Rhetorical Appeals
The speaker uses the appeal of ethics mainly in the article. She uses the theme of moral obligation to fellow humans to get her points across.
The author also uses the logic of media structure and subject matter in her article.
Emotional appeals are used in this article for persuasive reason, particularly towards other women.

Synthesis Question
Are gender roles and inequalities still a prevalent issue in society, and if so, where do gender issues appear?
1. What made the 2012 Olympics the most gender equal in Olympic history? How do they still need to improve?

2. What is one way that women are objectified in the media besides the use of images?

3. Do you believe it is right for a religion to not allow one gender to not be educated? Why or why not? What can we do to change what is happening right now?

4. Who do you think works more, men or women? What do you have to support your opinon?
