How were women educated and indoctrinated at home? How did women use the didactic works to empower themselves? Make a small argument (enough to sustain with just 1-2 pieces of evidence from this week’s readings), give 1-2 direct or indirect quotes from the readings (attributed to the correct author and reading), and then discuss it in your own words to tie your mini-argument to the evidence.
You only need one paragraph — you’re practicing making building blocks that make a larger paper.
Please use Chicago Manual of Style for your footnote. Bibliography is not necessary.
