Who is your audience for this essay? What do you want to communicate to them? Why is it important for them to know?
I'm only submitting this paper to my teacher, so I think she's the main audience for this essay. However, since I'm going into the psychology field, I think my audience could be psychologists as well. I want to communicate the benefits of trans-cranial magnetic stimulation in my paper. I think it's important for my audience to know the benefits because they are often overlooked in medical texts.
Subject: Gender Studies
What is intersectional feminism and how does it compare to earlier feminist movements? Why is intersectional feminism important?
Intersectional feminism examines how an individual's gender, race, class, ability, age, et cetera intersect and impact how they navigate the world around them. Earlier feminist movements tended to focus solely on gender inequality, while ignoring other disparities people faced due to their inherit identities. These movements are often referred to as "White Feminism," due to the fact that they were lead by mostly upper-class white women who did not consider the complexities of inequality when race, class, ability, etc are brought into play. Intersectional feminism is important because it allows us to examine how individuals navigate the world based on their unique identity as opposed to being simplified into a singular oppressed categorization.
Subject: Film and Theater
Identify a film or a performance that you have recently seen and describe a scene from it that was significant to you. Why was this scene significant to you? Do you think this scene was also significant to the plot of the film/performance? Why or why not? (Be brief but concise in your description of the scene and characters.)
I recently attended a performance of "Twelfth Night." There was a moment in the play where Malvolio, the Puritan steward, was being tortured by Feste, the fool. It stood out to me because Malvolio was in a torture chamber on stage, cast in shadows. I think that this scene was significant to the whole plot of "Twelfth Night" because it demonstrated the morality of several other characters. These other characters tricked Malvolio into acting erratic so that they could torture him.
