Learn to write a gender equality essay

Writing essays can be a bind particularly if you are not really sure how to get the grades that you need. They can also be time consuming when you don’t seem to have enough hours in a day to get everything done that is demanded of you. All too often, with these issues in mind, it is too easy to procrastinate and to leave writing an essay until the day before it is due in. This is not a good idea. If you follow the steps set out in this article and start as soon as you get your essay list, then you will easily produce a great gender equality essay.

 

In this article you will learn:

Choosing a topic is essentially a major part of writing an essay. The reason for this is that it is frustrating to start writing an essay and after three or four failed attempts decide that it is not the essay for you. This means that you have to start again and all the work that you have done is lost. This not only wastes your precious time but it dents your confidence. Once your confidence is wounded concerning essay writing, it makes it an awful chore.

This means that instead of rushing in to pick the first essay title that looks appealing, you should consider the list carefully. For instance, if you see a question that states ‘where is equality in the Labour Party if they have never had a female leader?’ You may think that is truly simple to answer because the fact that they haven’t had a female leader obviously means that there is no equality in the party. However, that in itself is not a critical analysis and you would need lots more evidence than that answer to write a full essay. Basically, if you are not au fait with politics, don’t attempt that question. Often the questions that seem to have simple answers can be the ones that are the most difficult to write and get the best grades at if you are not fascinated by the subject.

 

The best advice when choosing which question to answer for your gender equality essay is to pick out the ones which appeal to you and then mind map them one by one. All you need to do to follow this procedure is get a blank piece of paper and scribble down anything that you think is related to the subject. When you have lots of ideas down, you then try to make connections between your ideas. If you do this with three topics and one sheet is covered with writing and the other two have a couple of ideas down on them, you know which question you should choose. Always avoid essays questions where ideas do not flow.

How to condense reading around the subject

Once you have chosen your essay question, it is tempting to procrastinate by reading everything that is connected to the subject. For instance, if you have chosen to answer the question ‘Did female playwrights of the 17th century have gender equality?’ you could spend the rest of your life reading about female playwrights and male playwrights of the 17th century and comparing them. This is why creating a hypothesis will help you to cut all that excess research right down. For instance, you might decide to develop evidence from one act in one play. For example, you might choose the play ‘She Ventures and He Wins’ by Ariadne. (This is a pseudonym.) Can you see how that would cut your reading time down now you have one piece of text to critically analyse? Furthermore, you have reduced how many critical essays and journals you need to read to add weight to your own theories.

Once you have read and analysed the text, you can develop your hypothesis. For instance, you may wish to demonstrate that there is an illusion that female playwrights in the 17th century had equality with male playwrights because they had their plays performed. However, they managed to get their plays performed because they had to write plays that appealed to the male sex’s image of itself whilst at the same time delivering a feminist message. Having a clear and focussed view of what you are writing about will help you to plan and write your essay.

The next stage to writing your essay is to make a plan. Don’t be tempted to leave this stage out as it is a vital one. At this point, you have written your hypothesis and done all your background reading so, therefore, you will have noticed some themes and patterns emerging. If you make a note of each pattern or theme, you will have the basis to make your points on. Depending, on the word count of your essay, choose in between three and five points that you wish to make. Write one sentence stating each point and this will be your plan. Under each point, make a note of all the evidence that you have to back up your point. This can include quotations from the text and critical theories of the text. It could also include historical evidence from the time.

It is important to remember, when writing an introduction, to take three steps:

  • Hook. This is to get your reader interested. Imagine that your professor has been up until midnight reading essays; it is not unreasonable to assume that by this time he or she is getting a bit jaded. A hook right at the beginning of the essay will make the whole experience more promising. For instance, if we stick with the female 17th century playwrights, we could offer ‘She Ventures and He Wins’ is written for survival. Can you see how it challenges the reader to find out more? The reader instantly wants to know why you are stating that.
  • Hypothesis. This is important because it focusses your argument and allows the reader to understand exactly what you are aiming to prove. It also prevents you from going off on a tangent in the main body of your essay if you keep checking that you are still referring to your hypothesis. Creating a distinct hypothesis that still answers the essay question may mean a lot more thinking at the start of the essay but it saves a lot of work overall. It usually means better grades too as it helps you to produce a much more focussed essay.
  • Trailer type points. Briefly explain each point that you will cover in the body of the essay. Each point is there to tempt the reader to continue reading. You don’t need to go into a lot of detail because that is for the main body of your essay.

If you think of the introduction as a form of advertisement to hook the reader in, you will write the exact amount of information that is required.

At this stage, if you have followed all the steps carefully, writing the main body of your essay should be straight forward. All you need to do is work through each point and then offer a full explanation with evidence to back it up. For instance, if we stay with the aforementioned example that explores the illusion of female playwrights having equality with male playwrights in the 17th century, we might wish to investigate how the playwright uses female choice within the text. You could use the following text from the play She Ventures and He Wins (Ariadne) to base your evidence on:

“I’ll have one who loves my person as well as gold, and please

Myself, not the world, in my choice.”

The above quotation would be used as both evidence and a springboard. It is evidence that the author is exploring female choice and it is also a springboard for discussion of the gender politics of the time. It will also add weight to your critical analysis if you can find any other critical theory that has been written either on the text or the theme that you are discussing. Remember, you do not have to agree with the theorists, in fact, if you can critically analyse what they have suggested, you will get a better grade for your essay.

By the time you have reached your conclusion, you should be feeling confident. However, strangely enough, it is often the conclusion that causes the most pain. The reason for this is that folks often believe that the conclusion needs to be bigger than it actually should be. Basically, you simply need to explain as concisely as possible what your research and writing has led you to believe concerning your hypothesis. Has your opinion changed because of the work that you have done? If so, why and if not, why not? Keep it brief and don’t paraphrase large chunks of your main body.

Once you have written your conclusion, you need to check your essay.

  • Check that you are not repeating yourself by paraphrasing a point. Tutors can spot padding as easily as they can spot a large gin and tonic.
  • Take time to check the structure of your argument. Make sure that it does not go off on a massive tangent; this is also a form of padding out your essay.
  • Ensure that you are answering the essay question. It’s amazing how many essays don’t actually answer the question from the list.
  • Make sure that it is free from spelling errors. You can write a wonderful piece but if it is littered with mistakes, it will spoil it for the reader and they will lose respect for you.
  • The same rules apply for grammatical errors. Don’t let yourself down by not reading your work over and over to make sure that it is as good as it can be.
  • Add all the sources you have cited.
  • Add a full bibliography.

If you’ve followed all the steps then you should, hopefully, you have been able to produce a good gender equality essay.
