In the space provided, answer the Typical Questions from the Overview.  Answer them in your own words, explaining how you may/may not see things differently (and whether you think the feminists could be right — and why it could be important to see things from their perspective).

Finish with a 3-C (3 pieces of evidence from all your reading and viewing) that reflects on why someone thinks feminism is important.  The paragraph should start with the topic sentence:

She could be right . . .
