This assignment requires you to write a research paper that
explores a particular topic or issue that is of concern to women, lesbian,
gay, and bisexual (LGB) people, and/or gender-nonconforming/transgender people and
evaluates potential strategies for improving their working lives.
Follow these steps to prepare your paper:
Begin by choosing a
topic that you would like to explore in greater depth, such as sexual
harassment; employment rights; LGB, transgender, and gender-nonconforming
people in the workplace; pay equity and the wage gap; sensitivity training,
women at the top, and solidarity; self-employment; child-care policy; women and
unions; or greater recognition for women’s unpaid work.
Be sure to look for
resources that will help you document concrete, up-to-date strategies that
women, LGB people, and/or gender-nonconforming/transgender people may be
working on. (Canadian policies/ regulations please).

questions as guidelines in researching and writing your paper:

Through your reading of
the course material, what major insights, theories, and concepts emerge with
respect to this issue?

this topic or issue, what relevant resources and/or organizations did you

much interest and attention is it receiving? What strategy or strategies are individuals,
organizations, or governments pursuing to improve the situation? Describe what
is involved in each of these strategies.
Based on your reading
and research, how would you evaluate the strategy or strategies that you have
described? What are their respective strengths and weaknesses? In your view, do
they promise to improve the working lives of women? If not, what other options

Once you have considered

your paper will be making regarding your topic?
Your paper needs to
