I NEED 2 ESSAYS FOR ME AND FOR MY BROTHER, SAME INFORMATION BUT 2 DIFFERENT DRAFTS
Due: December 1
(November 30 for Monday Evening Class)
In this assignment you will write a little longer piece than the Vietnam one.
You will answer this question:
Why were the experiences of white, black, and Hispanic feminists different?
You will write three paragraphs for this essay, the content of each is outlined
below. Remember as you write that you are not writing to me, your professor,
but to a general reader. Write the two body paragraphs first and then write the
introduction and background paragraphs.
Introduction: In the first paragraph, you will introduce your reader to the topic
at hand. You must bring your reader into the topic from a general statement about
movements of the 1960s to statements about feminism to the issue of the
differences in experiences of feminists. The paragraph will close with a thesis
statement, which is a one-sentence answer to the question that the essay answers.
Minimum length for this paragraph should be five sentences.
Two Body Paragraphs: Explain the differences in experience of white, black,
and Hispanic feminists and the reasons that their experiences were different.
Because each paragraph must make one point, review your notes and the
readings to find two points that you want to make about the differences. And,
then, take notes on what specific evidence you will offer about those
You may organize your two body paragraphs in different ways. You could
do a paragraph on white feminists’ experiences and a second on black and
Hispanic feminists’ experiences, explaining how the experiences for the black
and Hispanic feminists were different in the second paragraph. Or, you could
organize the two paragraphs around two kinds of differences and write about
the experiences of each of the groups of feminists in both paragraphs.
Remember a few points as you write:
Do not write with the books open in front of you. Take notes on what
you need to cover, writing in your own words. Then, write your paper by
looking at your notes.
Go over your paper after you have written it. Re-read it to find typos,
missing words, and to check if the evidence in each paragraph supports
the topic sentence of that paragraph.
You must explain the reasons for the differences in feminist experience,
but you also much show the context of the feminist movement. The
other movements we have studied are part of that context.
Use the evidence sandwich. Introduce the sources that you work from by
identifying the name of the author and the position of the author. For
documents, you should also explain how the author happened to write
the document. And make sure that the reader can see how your
evidence hooks onto your topic sentence.
Use information from any of the readings in this course that you find
useful, particularly the ones from the two weeks on feminism. Do NOT
use any Internet sources.
Type up your two paragraphs and be sure that they conform to these rules:
They must be typed, double-spaced, with your name at the top of the
They must be written entirely in your own words. USE NO
They must not include any information taken from any source other than
those assigned in the class. USE NO INTERNET SOURCES TO WRITE

Monday evening class)

“Submit the Feminism Assignment.”

not an excuse to submit the paper late.

toward the 180-point total for the Writing Assignments part of the course
