Finding a Political Solution to a Moral Dilemma
“The most pressing global problems simply won’t be solved without the participation of women.” Verveer opens up the article with this quote as her main claim. Throughout the article she focuses on the need for women to be involved with political issues. Verveer uses many examples and sources to back her claim that promoting the status of women is needed to accomplish global peace and security. The author includes how Barack Obama’s administration has tried to involve women in foreign affairs. She also states that Hilary Clinton’s goal is to advance the status of women all around the ...view middle of the document...

Verveer uses the president’s administration efforts to include women in foreign affairs as an example. This is an effective tool used to persuade because the president is a strongly credible source, however; some may disagree and disregard the whole meaning of the article because they do not like our president or agree with his decisions, meaning it could also take away her credibility to some. The author uses fact from the Human Security Report Project to prove her claim it is not just about the economy, but also about global security. This example is a credible source and applies to more than one important issue it would solve which positively influences. ‘Goldman Sachs researchers found that closing the gender gap between male and female employment would be a powerful engine for global growth, even in the United States and the Eurozone, where it could boost GPD by billions of dollars... (pg.2)” This quote supports her claim that women are a tool to climb out of the recession and is successful in convincing partly due to the trustworthiness of the source. The author includes the goal of Hilary Clinton to fully assimilate women all around the world in every aspect of U.S. foreign policy. Using the Secretary of State as a source is a good way to build credibility as well as persuade. Overall, Verveer is successful in providing intrinsic and extrinsic forms of ethical appeal.
The author uses many examples of emotional appeal to support her claim that women are not granted the equality they should be and are excluded in many areas. “Women endure much of the residual violence and poverty caused by armed conflicts, and they bear much of the burden of rebuilding families and communities (pg. 2).” Verveer’s tone is appropriate for creating a sympathetic feel. One of her sources states that “Egypt last year, women marched on the front lines of the protests often leading their fathers, brothers, and husbands into Tahrir Squares (pg. 3).” The strong imagery creates an emotional response and addresses other countries stance. “ Women were also left out of demobilization programs for ex-combatants because the definition of “combatant” did not consider the thousands of women who had been kidnapped and forced to work as military cooks, messengers, or sex slaves (pg. 3).” The strong imagery introduces many different emotions and successfully produces an emotional appeal. “For generations, the United States too often viewed the world’s women as victims of poverty and illiteracy, of violence and seemingly unbreakable cultural traditions (pg. 1).” Associating women with these negative circumstances shapes a sympathetic response. Verveer includes a plea from an Afghan woman: “Please do not see us as victims, but look to us as the leaders we are (pg. 1).” This quote intrigues emotion by the language applied to persuade; this convinces the audience of Verveer’s stance. The author is successful in utilizing ethical appeal throughout the article to prove her...
