Then,when you begin the essay, you will be shown an image that is a print advertisement featuring a woman and a man. You will be to respond to this question:
What is the image attempting to say about either masculinity or femininity?
Use the ideas of EITHER Michael Kimmel or Jean Kilbourne (not both) to make your argument. (use quotes from the article)
- around 800 words.
- You are not required to include a Works Cited page, but do include page number citations when referencing the article you choose to use.
- Include a thesis that answers the question. The thesis should be about what the images communicate, then use the article in the body of your essay to support your analysis.
Read both articles, and decide which one is most interesting to you. Which article do you feel the most comfortable with? You will need to explain its ideas and use its ideas to support your argument, so be sure you understand those ideas.
