Feminism is a philosophical political movement which has helped to transform the world. Its various waves have changed the relationship between men and women across the planet and helped to reform society. Essays about feminism can therefore be sometimes difficult to write and or tricky to properly express. However, this article will help you understand how to write an essay about feminism and to be able to properly argue your points, supported by theoretical evidence, which is vital for a good feminism essay. When writing an essay like this, it is important to not bring your own philosophical or political beliefs to the forefront but to consider the issue that you are writing about through the lens of the theory rather than try to change the arguments to fit your own political beliefs.
What has to be made particularly clear about a feminist essay is that, like other types of essays, it will always follow a particular pattern and have a specific structure. The only aspect that will ever change is the content and how the author deals with it. This should always be at the front of your mind when writing a feminism essay as, regardless as to whether you agree with the arguments that you use, it is important that you understand how to use them and to support them with theoretical evidence, enabling you to write an interesting and impressive piece of work. This will allow you to get great marks for your work and achieve the highest possible grade you can.

With any essay, the first place to begin is the opening. The opening does not just allow you to open your argument but briefly outline the conclusion to the question you have been set. For instance, if your question is “How much of an impact has second wave feminism had on the media?” then your answer to that question would be briefly summarised in the opening paragraph. You must ensure that your argument is strong and clear from the very beginning because throughout your essay you should be constantly referring back to the question and to your solution to it. This allows your opening to be strongly linked to the rest of your question and allow it to feel fully integrated – some people try to write their opening after they have written the rest of their essay. Whilst this may work for some people, it is not advisable if you have any particular problems with the subject. In other words, the opening is a means of building up your argument so that you can easily refer back to it. You should demonstrate to the examiner that throughout your piece you have built up your argument with evidence and also check that you have worked consistently throughout the piece to sustain your argument and that there are no weak spots in your argument or reasoning.
Now it’s time to move onto your main argument. When writing a feminist essay, it is important to deal with which particular wave of feminism or whether it is feminism in general in which you are writing about. For instance, if your question is about first wave feminism then second or third wave feminism will not be relevant to your argument. However, if you are writing about all aspects of feminism then you must endeavour to include as many aspects of the various waves as possible. However, the various waves of feminism are often seen as too broad for an essay on its own so often a feminism essay question will be much more specific and deal with an area of feminism that isn’t widely covered out of a feminism essay. We will break down these potential topics and how you can deal with them if you were presented them in the context of an essay question. These are, of course, not the only topics that you could get but some of the most popular for feminism essays to cover.
Planning for any of these types of questions is important as this will allow you to fully develop your argument before writing it. You must consider all types of evidence when writing a feminism essay plan so that it can be as strong as possible to ward off any potential criticism you may have. Your central argument – whether you agree with the question or not – is the section that must be planned in the most depth to demonstrate your persuasive writing abilities as well utilize your evidence to support your argument. This will produce and impressive an academically interesting piece of work.
Like the opening section of your essay, the conclusion does not needas much in-depth planning as your main argument. The conclusion for all essay follows a standard pattern; remind the reader of your main argument and your answer to the question, bring up some of your strongest points to ensure that the reader fully understands the points that you have been using in your piece before concluding the essay. This will allow you to demonstrate not only your ability to argue using evidence but also how you are able to successfully answer the question and demonstrate that your answer to the question is the correct one. This will demonstrate to the examiner that you have a strong and decisive judgement which allows you to respond to the question, provide your evidence to support this response and to link back to the question. Some examiners may ask that you state what you feel is the strongest evidence for your argument in the conclusion – whether they do or not it is a useful element to include in your essay as it allows you to demonstrate to the examiner that not only are you able to make a sound judgement regarding the question but also that you can make a judgement about which of your evidence is the strongest. This may help convince the examiner that your argument is correct and may help you gain more marks for your essay.
The final element of your essay that you should do before submitting it is to proof read it. This may seem like a task that is unnecessary but often students can be tripped up by failing to properly conjugate a verb or checking their spelling. It can be done fairly quickly, if you are under exam conditions, and may result in you gaining a couple of extra marks that you may not have otherwise got.
