The purpose of this assignment is to
understand how an individual might operate culturally within a larger
group. Select a culture within a country or a country and describe what
life is like for women. This is a chance for you to be
creative….rather than citing facts and statistics I want you to
describe in depth the life of a fictional subject in that culture. You can write from a female or male’s
perspective but you are writing about life for women in that culture.

you work? Do you have children? Do you go to school? How do the laws,
traditions, and institutions affect your experiences? What are your
dreams/hopes/aspirations? What is it like to be a woman in the country?

women in your culture. You must fit your discussion within the context
of a real culture and their societal rules/structure (e.g., marriage,
work, laws, traditions, etc. 1300 words minimum
