    • Hey there! Saw your post in the Activity section. I might not know what to do with my own IA topic, but I think I may be of some help here "compose it" as in compose the question or the essay? If it's the question: "To what extent did X cause Y" or something simple like that should be sufficient. (e.g. To what extent was the role of women changed after the introduction of the Law of Marriage in China?") If you decide to focus your question a bit more you could adjust the format to accommodate. If it's the essay: Perhaps you could examine different groups of women (e.g. social classes), and how their lives were impacted by the Law of Marriage? You could also look at how the culture itself was changed by the law (or how, in some ways, how it remained unchanged. I am Chinese, and I know for a fact that some men with higher standings in modern China have started to take in "xiao san", a colloquial term literally translated "little three." It's basically the "other woman," but it's similar to the concubinage that was the norm in the past, although concubines were formally recognized. Would maybe be an interesting point to note how the masses still hold the past standard in their collective memory.) Maybe you could even examine how different groups of men reacted to the laws. Maybe do a brief bit of compare/contrast to the Western feminism movement, although you probably wouldn't want to focus on that too too much.  There's a lot of interesting stuff you could investigate. Good luck, and hope this helped!
    • I think I can help you if you want to. I can tell you how to start structuring it and also help with going in the right direction rather than going in deviated routes.
    • Hello! I'm considering doing an EE in English Lit and am wondering if Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card would be a good enough book to write it on? I've heard that it is studied by some schools in Grade 9 and so is inappropriate unless I come up with an incredibly good topic.  I have some ideas and would like to know if they are appropriate: Applying psychoanalytical criticism to Ender? Comparing and contrasting Ender's game and an (undecided) Chinese classic of some kind? (would be great if there were some suggestions there, too!) Thank you all in advance!
    • I have wondered at times what happened to give women such equal standing with men in modern Chinese society, so I'm sure his policies on women really were very interesting. I'll have to do some research on that. Thanks! But I am kind of wary that topics based on the major dictators are a bit overused. What kinds of topics would you suggest me avoid, if I do decide on Mao's period? (or other 20th century dictators, for that matter?)
    • Hi! I'm doing my IA on Mao Tse Tung's politics on women, around 1930-1950. The most interesting and relevant thing I could find was the cause and consequence of the Law of Marriage in China implemented during his government, but I don't know how to make it up to be a question. I want to research the different reactions that this controversial law had and how the role of women changed, so if anyone could have some idea of how to compose it, it would be amazing! thanks.
