Compare and Contrast

Compare and contrast two moments at which a person or persons are being attacked, insulted, discriminated against, or criticized on the basis of gender and culture’s expectations of it. The essay will demonstrate your close reading skills, your analytical observations, and your ability to look at two different time periods and situations side-by-side. It will also give me an idea of where you are in your argumentation and writing, helping me identify how I can help you develop as a communicator. Finally, it will connect the historical readings we’re discussing with moments that are relevant to your own lives.
