The speaker Memory Banda, wrote a speech called “A Warrior’s Cry Against Child Marriage” in May 2015. The speech was then published on “TED Talk’s” website. Banda, spoke about her sister being sent to an “initiation camp” in Malawi, at the age of 11, and being taught “how to sexually please a man”. Banda, however, refused to go and gathered people from her community to issue a bylaw that no girl should be forced to marry before the age of 18. Banda’s purpose was to make her audience, which are women around the world, to stand up for themselves no matter what the situation may be. Banda makes the appeal to ethos and pathos with personal information about herself, her younger sister, and other women around her community that went through the same experience. Banda begins by communicating pathos in her speech. She starts out by making everyone in the audience laugh by saying, “I'll begin today by sharing a poem written by my friend from Malawi, Eileen Piri. Eileen is only 13 years old, but when we were going through the collection of poetry that we wrote, I found her poem so interesting, so motivating. So I'll read it to you. She entitled her poem "I'll Marry When I Want."
