Thank you Gloria! Wow! You gave great examples on why your expository writing has a better representation of healing, trauma and empowerment. However , you only seem to really talk about yourself a lot but know we will have Ana Castillo who will explain her point of views and why her expository writing clearly shows all healing, trauma and empowerment. Off to you Ana Castillo
HMMM..those where great points but I know that my Expository Writing shows a great representation of healing, trauma and empowerment... now is my time to prove myself!
Well I think that went well but let's see if Castillo can top that off. Yes I know I could have made my points stronger by having talked about groups and the healing, trauma and empowerment but I had to include myself.
There you go folks! Gloria Anzaldua thank you for proving yourself through the use of a sympathetic emotional appeal of pathos, historical object through logos, and herself as credibility through ethos. Great points where made but Ana Castillo through a passionate emotional appeal, statistics of women history records through logos and credibility through ethos which in my opinion and to those in there homes watching agree that Castillos expository text proved a great representation of healing, trauma and empowerment With this ladies and gentlemen we will end today's show, your host, me Dafne Chaj, and our special guest Ana Castillo and Gloria Anzaldua hoped you enjoyed todays show on Expository Writing: Chicanos, Black and Latino Racial Problems. Bye now!
Well thank you Dafne ! To start off through the use of a passionate emotional use of pathos I show healing in which many women have been put through and little by little they are healing from suffering. In my text I quote, "As heiresses of Christianity, we have been alienated from our intu- itions and dreams, from bonds with other women, our same-sex lovers, and our umbilical tie to the Mother-Bond Principle by over four thou- sand years of spiritual oppression (as well as five hundred years of relentless racism) “(Castillo’s, 229). Enough is enough! Even when women are put down we have not stoped fighting and it has taken a lot of healing and fighting but this does not stop here.
Castillo: You did great Gloria Gloria: Well thank you so did you! I have to admit you made very strong points *sighs
Such as we see healing through women, trauma, my second point, is seen through a historical event through logos. And I quote, " When we profess a vision of a world where a woman is not raped somewhere in the United States every three minutes, where one of every three female children do not experience sexual molestation, where the Mexican female is not the lowest paid worker in the United States—we are not hating but trying to change the facts of our conditions”(Castillo, 230). Statistically speaking women are left with traumatic events for years it has been like this. It is crazy like I said a women is raped every three minutes in the United States know imagine in the whole world. Besides healing women have been put into traumatic situations as well.
Healing, Trauma and know my last point empowerment which is seen through the use of my credibility through ethos. And I quote, " I have not always spoken from my personal experiences, because unlike millions of women , as a writer I have a voice that can be heard…I spotlighted that which has been deemed traditional and therefore, sacred in most of our lives, the Christian God , mothers, men, and the preservation of Mexican customs. In doing so , I found our lives are guided by a deep religiosity that transcends male-constructed theologies” ( Castillos, 219). I use my own voice besides being a women myself but I am a human being as well and the power to voice what I believe is right and what needs to be heard. I am a writer but I also have a life outside from being just a writer and just like every women should be heard so should I . Thank you!
