Wollstonecraft is writing the letter to convince Talleyrand, a former bishop helping with the French Revolution, to revise the constitution to respect women’s rights. Wollstonecraft is addressing the issue of unequal treatment of women. Wollstonecraft sees this as an issue due to it being completely unfair for men to fight for their own freedom and happiness and not allow women the same freedom and happiness. Wollstonecraft’s discourse community are women who are oppressed and the recipient of the letter is outside of the group.

Young is writing this speech because she wishes to stop people from using disabled people as inspiration porn. Young is addressing the issue of able-bodied people using disabled people as their inspiration and praising them for what everybody else does. Young sees the issue as a problem because able-bodied people see disabled people doing things and say, “if they can do it, so can you,” which unintentionally puts disabled people down. It can also be seen as a way to objectify disabled people by treating them as objects of inspiration. I would identify Young’s discourse community as disabled people and the recipient of the speech seems to be outside of the group.
