There is No Unmarked Woman

1. So, this idea of marked and unmarked gender styles is interesting. The more I think about it, the more I think it is true. But Deborah Tannen's article is constructed in an interesting manner as well. To examine that structure and the techniques she used to get her point across, blog the questions 1-8 on page 393.

2. We also took a look at Barbie Doll on page 403-4. Considering the essay There Is No Unmarked Woman, attempt to explain why and how the expectations for women's looks and styles affects how women live their lives. Are there good things about the expectations and the world of fashion and makeup, or is it wholly pernicious to society and to personal and professional relationships? Append this to the questions.

Due on Monday
