So I need some help with my research question for my EE. I have string of ideas, but I do not know where to focus my essay. Just an quick non-spoiler overview of my EE ideas: Stephen King's The Shining (1977) Movie adaptation of The Shining by Stanley Kubrick (1980) Second-Wave feminist movement was from 1960s to 1980s, so both works were released during a huge feminist movement. Wendy Torrance is not a typical horror genre female victim. She fights for herself and survives in the end. Stephen King expressed his criticism towards the poor portrayal of Wendy in the movie, saying that she is the most "misogynistic" female character on screen. Also, said that he disliked the movie adaptation, since it seemed a little sexist. Any ideas for a research question? By the way, NO one can copy my EE!!!! I am warning you. By posting this I have receipts, that the idea of examining feminist theme portrayed in SK's The Shining was originated by ME.
