    Hey all

    I have to do a project in English on feminism
    And I have to do a symbolic representation of it

    Any ideas?

    Yay! A topic which would suit for me very well.

    I could recommend a book called The Second Sex (written by Simone De Beauvoir). Miss Beauvoir was born in 1908 in France and died in 1986. She was one of the world the most famous feminist and actually the first person who brought out thoughts like this (The Second Sex was published in 1949).

    I've dealt with feminism little when I was in upper secondary school. But it's pretty culture specific theme so I reckon I can't help more (sorry). Maybe you should find some notable feminists which have affected in your culture? I can still recommend miss Beuvoir because I'm sure that she's impacted feminism all around the world.

    You could do it on the "glass ceiling" for women in the corporate world. The women who have broken through in areas like business, the law, politics. Even women who do non-traditional work like construction companys, auto repair business's etc.
    It could be a glass ceiling with work boots instead of high heels and wingtips.

    Love the glass ceiling idea, and that's what I am doing, along with something else
    But what can I use for the glass ceiling? I don't have any spare glass lying around..

    If you have to have a visual type of thing you could use anything clear, like plastic wrap. Do you have to make a display or give a speech or what?

    If you have lots of plastic packaging round your house you could create glass shards, if you wanted to break the glass ceiling. You could get really good effects from that, particularly with the way most of the common plastics go translucent or opaque when bent.
