R/A Topic 4

§Research the Women’s Movement beginning in the nineteenth century. Trace it through the sixties and include key progressions in women’s rights. Then argue whether women can overcome beauty ideals. Use Naomi Wolf’s “The Beauty Myth” as support for your argument.
§Option 2—Answer the above topic, and argue that Nora’s beauty is one of the reasons she is not taken seriously in A Doll’s House.

You may also include "Hills Like White Elephants" and argue that the man wanted the abortion because he feared the change in the girl's gender role--from girl to woman/mother
