She proves her point through key persuasive devices such as syntax anaphoraand references which allude to both history and the women’s suffrage movement. Syntax andanaphora are often used in tandem to create pathos and ethos, while references are used to invokelogos. Catt addresses congress using her ethos as a women’s rights leader to convince them tojoin her cause.Catt’s excellent use of syntax serves to create a certain tone that creates pathos betweenher, the women she represents, and the men she is trying to convince. In her first two sentences,she utilizes shorter sentences to give her statements a definitive and arguably intimidating tone.
