I'm writing an essay required for school, involving the analysis of texts.
“remove the shackles of prejudice and intolerance”
I was wondering if there is any other literary technique in the above quote, other than just a metaphor?
Context: These, then, are our common hopes that unite us -- that as the shackles of prejudice and intolerance fall from our own limbs we can together strive to identify and remove the impediments to human development everywhere. The mechanisms by which this great task is to be achieved provided the proper focus of this great Forum. I feel sure that women throughout the world who, like me, cannot be with you join me now in sending you all our prayers and good wishes for a joyful and productive meeting.
