  1. Do you believe in gender equality? do you believe in feminism and what it stands for? If not, Why? This is purely out of curiosity and is not meant to attack anybody.
  2. Hello, We are working on a project for our LA class regarding The Handmaid's Tale. We are exploring the role of feminism in both the book and in today's society. Below are some questions regarding today's society and the theme of feminism and we would greatly appreciate any comment regarding any/all questions (please include the number you are responding to in your answer). Thank you!!! What is feminism? Difference between sexism and feminism? Why is feminism important? Who is a well known feminist? Can anyone be a feminist? What is the ideal Feminist Society? Equal gender representation or women bias? Who runs Society/ government? How would it be maintained? How would those who don't believe be treated? What is the path to this society from our current one? How is the Society run? Can this ideal Feminist Society ever be met? Realistic? Truly Feminist or just partial What are our current restrictions? What can we do today regarding the Feminist fight?
  3. I am doing my EE on english A and I am stuck in finding the perfect topic as well as research question for my essay. I will be using two books, "the robber bride" and "the lover". I was also wondering if I can do it on one book only?
  4. So this would be the plan outline the EE: RQ: How and why have the roles of female protagonists developed in the films “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfsâ€, “The Little Mermaid†and “Tangled†by Walt Disney? Hypotheses: The female protagonists have changed from the submissive “maiden in distress†stereotype to the more dominant “independent woman†stereotype. The changes in the roles were influenced by the depiction and role of women in society during those time eras. Work process: 1. Research the role of women during the time eras of the films 2. Research Disney's female character policy 3. Watch the films and look for proof in the actions, behaviour, attitude and relations with other characters of the protagonist. 4. Compare the films and link them to the background material 5. Reach a conclusion It would try to fit under the 3rd category dealing with cultural context. The audience would be the modern, western, English-speaking society of today (of which I am part of as well), as in what can we see and deduct from those movies with provided hindsight and historical knowledge. My question is, would this be possible under the 3rd criteria? I feel that the language part could be lacking, althought there would be some quotes from characters within the films that address the protagonist and some literary features could be analyzed, but I feel it might perhaps be ltoo marginal, which would result in failing the EE as it does not fit under any criteria. Tthe films are lacking in viable language analysis anyway as they are mostly visual texts. And, hypothetically speaking, if this plan were to have already passed 2 forms and EE presentations and done up to point 4. and the essay WOULD NOT fall under any category, then: 1. To what category could on fit that EE? 2. What could one do to adjust it to the English A criterion 3? 3. How should one proceed? I will be contacting my teacher as well, but constructive opinions and help in the meantime is welcome. ( I hope it was precise enough)
  5. Hi there! I'm doing my EE in English B and I struggle with a suitable topic. I have a lot of ideas, but just dunno if I could write 4000 words on any. My original idea was naming in the Harry Potter series - you know, the symbolism behind it etc., but a lot of people here say that Harry Potter never gets good grades and is way too popular for a topic. I'm also very interested in feminism and thought about pairing it up with fairytales somehow, like how fairytales portray women or something. Or maybe a RQ like "How are women represented in magazine advertisements?" I love Disney films and I also thought about "How has Disney's portrayal of main female roles changed as women's rights have advanced?" I'm also considering the idea of the role/portrayal of women in the 1920 America as shown in F.S. Fitzgerald's works, or anything about the 1920s culture and Fitzgerald or the flapper girls, I just really love it, but no research question comes to my mind. The last idea is pretty random and I don't even know if I could analyse TV series for an EE, but... I was wondering if I could maybe analyse political incorrectness in the show Friends? They make a lot of sexist, borderline homophobic jokeks there, and I must admit, it seems tempting to choose it as a topic. Can you please help me with phrasing RQs out of that messy thoughts of mine?
  6. Hi! I was browsing through the forums and was inspired by @ouribjourney's post of creating a worldwide CAS project. I'm interested in doing something similar where I can make a website to hit the learner outcome of Engaging with issues of global importance to enhance gender equality. In the website, I'm aiming to incorporate news articles, statistics & photographs to show gender inequality & suggestions on overcoming it. To make it worldwide, I was hoping that people from different parts of the world can share their experiences regarding gender inequality and how they think it can be reduced where they live. I live in Tanzania (East Africa) where some girls are subjected to female circumcision and most women do not get the same educational and job opportunities as men do. Through the website, I hope we can reduce gender inequality (and you can get CAS hours for Service too! ) Please comment if you're interested in doing this and we can work on the website together!
