The purpose of this assignment is to have you perform a feminist critique of the way violence operates/is communicated/is enforced in an event that is happening in our lives. Pick something CONTEMPORARY from the newspaper, TV, or social media and make an argument about what type of gendered violence is occurring in the “story.” Use the articles from class to support your claims about that which you are analyzing. Explain your position by backing up your claims with scholarly evidence from class and use four (4) outside articles from the CSUEB library (4 scholarly articles). The goal is to convince the reader to adopt your feminist perspective about the violence occurring in the “story.” What is this “story” telling us about the larger discourses surrounding violence against women and power, gender, race, class, ability, etc? For this assignment you will be evaluated on your writing skills, your attention to persuasive appeals, and your use of evidence (focusing on particular parts of the “story” and relating them back to the theory from the course and external articles). This assignment will be 5-7pgs (not including cover/reference page) and should contain an introduction, body, conclusion, a cover page and reference page all in APA, and combine knowledge of all concepts discussed this semester.
