  • Write and submit a short Word document (roughly 400 to 500 words, single or double-spaced) that fulfills the following prompt:
    • Based on the readings from Dicker and Bender, write a response that discusses and analyzes both of the following:
      1. A couple of major developments in the U.S. feminist/women’s rights movements in the 19th century (Dicker, Ch. 2).
      2. The causes, effects, and significance of the harassment of women workers in the late 19th century garment (clothing) industry (Bender).
        • Note #1: You certainly may discuss material from Dicker Chapter 1, but the focus of your response must be on Dicker Chapter 2 and Bender.
        • Note #2: Please use at least one quote from the Dicker/Bender readings to support your analysis.

Writing Directions

  • All writing assignments MUST be submitted as Word documents.
    • If you don’t use Word, your word processor can still save documents as Word documents. Go to “Save As,” scroll to locate Word (.doc or .docx), click “Save.”
  • All writing assignments should have your name and a brief title indicating the assignment at the top of the first page.
  • This assignment is informal – but it should have basic elements of organization, such as:
    • It should contain full sentences written in paragraph(s) form in an organized fashion.
    • Think BEGINNING, MIDDLE, and END
      • Each sentence should have a beginning, middle, and end.
      • Each paragraph should have a beginning, middle, and end.
      • The short response as a whole should have a beginning, middle, and end.
  • Make sure you provide a brief parenthetical citation (author last name, page number) for your quotations.
    • Quotes should be no longer then 3 sentences — please do not quote full paragraphs. Instead, choose the most
    • important part.
