the topic of my essay is Gender Inequality and the United States Family Structure
The introduction and thesis should be visible.
In the body of the paper, after the introduction and prior to the conclusion, each paragraph should introduce or build on a concept(s) that is promised in the introduction. You should provide supporting evidence using a given author(s)’ related claim and present multiple perspectives if possible.
In the conclusion, restate the issue, reiterate your key points placing an emphasis on those points, and suggest a resolution or a move-forward positive approach. No first person “I” in your research component, instead, focus more on research findings. No hypothetical questions, and unnecessary quotes.
“A woman is human. She is not better, wiser, stronger, more intelligent, more creative, or more responsible than a man. Likewise, she is never less. Equality is a given. A woman is human.”― Vera Nazarian, The Perpetual Calendar of Inspiration. To address and solve any gender inequality issue in our society, I believe we need to start from the smaller and original unit in our society- our family structure. Women is known to have less opportunities in their career path, access to education, higher risk in healthy and safety, and less participating in politic. Although the inequality treatment to women within the family structure seemed to be worse in Asian countries, gender inequality in the U.S. still needed to be addressed and improved.
The injustice in the family structure can be focused on 3 main points, the inequality of labor distribution within the family, the access to education for women, and their economic and political empowerment. From the old school male bread-winner/ Female Home maker model, to after World War II that female labor is in greater needs due to males were sent to joining the War. More and more female to join work place also leads to a new issue: the unequal sexual division of labor in our family structure. The labor difference is making a big effect on wage earnings and politics. Let’s ask this question to ourselves. “What is our children going to learn from being fair when both parents are both working full time, but the mother is doing more family work than the father?”
comment I get from professor:
explore gender inequality solutions that can result in healthier relationships as framed in a nuclear family structure. You will address three main issues in relation to your narrow topic idea, which are: Domestic labor distribution within the domestic sphere; earned education in the political sphere as it aligns with the third point; earned income in the public sphere by means of employment, which speaks to the notion of breadwinner. I am questioning if gender coupled with another identity intersection can play into your three points.
