• Thematic Reflection Three, The Woman Question o Use the intro to the second sex and describe the woman’s question o Use other readings to explore critiques of the categories man/woman o Is the binary categories we use to define gender useful. o Questions ▪ How many critiques should be included in the paper? • Focus on one critique in-depth. ▪ How should I approach a question that is this broad? • Don’t do this: Answer each question individually • Connect these questions into one cohesive whole • What is needed is a singular argument that connects all parts of the prompt. • My suggestion, think about the conversations that we’ve had on gender, what is your opinion about the place of gender in society. The woman question is ultimately about how woman functions as a broader social category that also effects individuals and communities. • What is the woman question? o What is woman? • For all the questions, how do you bring them into a thesis question? o Example: In this paper, I argue that the binary gender constructions of man/woman are used to control the attitudes of others. To this end, I explore how the woman question, as explored by Beauvoir, is a critique of the central function of gender, to make woman the Other of man. Further, I am interested in how the categories of gender, in their practice of controlling people often require the exclusion of people on the bases of race, class, and other unrepresented performances of gender. ▪ General Critiques • Critique One: What’s the deal with gender? o Which is a critique is so far as it seeks to expand Beuvoir’s assumptions about gender? o There’s still an assumption that there is a natural component of gender that is fixed and unchanged. (Witting) ▪ We ignore the social function of the category of woman ▪ Made up shit still has consequences • Critique Two: Women of color exist. o In her use of the sex/race analogy, Beuvoir assumes that a woman cannot be oppressed due to her race. This means, women of color are unaccounted for in Beauvoir’s account of the woman question. o Is the category of gender useful if it leaves out a segments of lived experience? ▪ What are we critiquing? • Just the categories but they all kind of tie in?
• focus on one critique in-depth.

Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.
We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.
Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?
All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.

I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?
Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.
