    I have 2 weeks to re-do my whole English language investigations coursework and I really need some help on what to do it on. it has to be on gender but im struggling to find frameworks.
    my original question was "to what extent are gender stereotypes present in magazines?" but there was too much data to cover. im now thinking of looking at transcripts from 'the 100' tv series and see how stereotypes are present in that, but it seems too much work to re-write transcripts as the ones I can find online are abit iffy. I really need some help

    You do not have time to transcribe things. You need written data. The absolute perfect data would be magazines - why have you decided your data was too much? If you narrowed down your question to a specific genre(s) of magazines, you would only need two or three of each genre to use as a data set, and that's more than manageable. You don't need to restart it, just perhaps shift your focus. You could look at typed interviews - like the ones in those teen managazines with celebs - and compare male/female, you could even just use your original data with a sharper focus, which seems to be the problem here. The investigation has to be specific enough so that you don't drown in data. Frankly, I think that restarting it this late is a very very ill-advisable idea.
