It’s time for some TLC with my sources (echoing the voice of Annalee said).
As I have been getting deeper and deeper into my thinking about my topic I realize I really do need to go back to key passages in the text. I think I know what I will find, and I certainly know now what I’m looking for, it’s just about going and doing it and finding those needed annotations!
This week I want to nail down a few, strong, articles about feminism and the empowerment of woman, specifically looking at how their definitions may have changed throughout the years. I also want to skim through Alice’s and Elsha’s big moments when they stood up for themselves = who were they up against? How did they emotionally handle the situation? What were the consequential changes in their character development? In every sequential experience after that a little more easier to stand up for themselves? (i.e. did their confidence continue to grow in their personal abilities to grow?)
I know the answer to these questions, I just want to support myself exactly with quotes and annotations for the text.
I think my highlighter and I are going to be creating a special bond with our books this week.
Wish me luck!
