Women’s & gender studies

ASSIGNMENT CRITERIA

Directions: This is one assignment consisting of responses to three short essays of 500 words each as directed below. The responses must include and analytically integrate information and theories presented in textbooks Feminist Issues: Race, Class, and Sexuality 5th edition Edited by Nancy Mandell, 2010 and Canadian Woman Studies: An Introductory Reader 2nd Edition by Andrea Medovarski and Brenda Cranney, 2006. You must draw on content from two sections (see below) in each essay response in providing concrete examples. If you cannot find something topic relative only in Canadian Woman Studies: An Introductory Reader based on the topic choices no worries just use another source maybe from the website options I provided that should suffice.

The three topic choices are:

  1. What is the biggest challenge to women’s rights, empowerment, and well-being today? What are some of the strategies of resistance and/or solutions to this challenge? What contributions have feminists made to address this challenge and how successful have their efforts been?
  2. How are women affected by gender and race? What are some of the barriers that women of colour face? What unearned benefits do white women gain from white privilege?
  3. What are some of the differences in the power and privilege between women of different classes? In what ways does a woman’s class status affect her social status and shape her experiences?

Below I itemized the topic sections that were covered in preparation for this assignment. I have included what were mandatory readings and some web resources that have been recommended in the course as additional sources. Again each of the three short essay MUST have citing from Feminist Issues: Race, Class, and Sexuality as a absolute and something from Canadian Woman Studies: An Introductory Reader that is topic relevant if at all possible.
