    Note: Module 2 SLP should be completed before the Module 2 Case.

    Reflecting on the seven gender-related videos for Module 2, write a well-organized and well-supported essay in which you help challenge society's limiting gender narratives.

    A well-organized essay has a beginning, middle, and an end. The beginning, or introduction, should include an opening sentence to grab your reader's attention. Follow the opening sentence with a brief background on the topic or situation. In this case, it would be an explanation of gender roles, stereotypes, myths, and/or controls in society today. The last sentence of the introduction is the thesis statement. The thesis states the main point of the essay, which in this case, would be a statement affirming what needs to be done to limit gender narratives in society today.

    A well-supported essay includes supporting points, details, and examples. For this essay, you must decide the best way to organize the body of the paper. Will you have a paragraph for each change? Will you divide the body of your paper into three or more paragraphs, one for each point? In any case, each body paragraph must support (explain) your reasoning (rationale) using specific details. Each body paragraph must have a topic sentence that states the main point of the paragraph.

    The conclusion typically summarizes the main points of the essay and/or closes with a lasting impression that connects the reader to their world. In this case, where is our society headed? Is it too late for change?

    Be sure to proofread your essay and edit for proper grammar, punctuation, diction (word choice), and spelling, as errors in sentence skills will lower a final grade. A grade will be determined based on the Module 2 Case expectations and the Trident University General Education rubric for English.

    Papers must be double-spaced in Times or Times New Roman font (12 cpi) with standard one-inch margins.

    The first person "I" is not used in a formal essay, nor is the passive "you." In place of "you," "one" may be used.

    This essay must include no less than SIX citations from the assigned background material for module 2. Citations are to be a combination of direct quotations and paraphrased quotations with or without the author's name. No other sources are to be used for this assignment.

    This is a general essay based on the background information and without any critical thinking applied in relation to how to identify or change the perceptions. I have place the background video information within the contextual paragraphs.

    Women and the representation of women has been a conflict with reality and perception for a very long time. One has only to consider the expectations of women throughout time to wonder how a woman can be expected to be mother, wife, homemaker, supplier of safety and home, while being incompetent to perform work outside of the home. The fact that women can perform multiple jobs of different sorts, using talents, skills, and knowledge that often does not follow singularly has created misperceptions that women accepted and continued rather than argue. Only with abuse, changes in rights, and steady progress over time, have women become more powerful. Oddly, this change has not lessened the skills, abilities, and power of men in general.
    Men are still seen by many as the owners of breadwinner ...
