My name is Archie, I am a 21 year-old male at the University in Scotland. I decided for my 4th year dissertation that I would like to discover something new to me, which is globally relevant and also informative, and decided that a topic surrounding feminism could be an interesting choice. I have found myself enjoying lectures on gender and society over the last few years and well I thought feminist.com would be a great place to start my education.
I am looking for a specific question to discuss in my dissertation, and was wondering if there were any particular areas of discussion which you could recommend to me as suitable dissertation material. I am ready to undertake some serious reading and have already started on women's history as a background 'filler' if you like. Are there any main arguments, which perhaps you would recommend? Or even a few key figureheads which I could study, as I do not want to head down any blind alleyways due to my inexperience.
I was looking into post feminism and thought such a debate would be intriguing. Any advice would be much appreciated. I will keep you updated on my progress and will send my final submission to you if you would like, it will be a substantial piece of around 10-15000 words. I appreciate that this may be overstepping a line in asking so much, but I felt if those with real interest cannot help, who can?
Many thanks for your time,
