Hey! I need to think of an idea by tomorrow to hand in a plan of my essay but i have no idea what to do anymore. I was going to do about the pressures the media put on young girls to look a certain way/ societies idea or expectation of beauty today but this whole weekend I've been trying to write it and i cant seem to write well. Also my teacher said that lots of people choose this topic so i have to make it original but i cant think of anything...any ideas?? So yeah if you can think of a new angle for that topic or any other topic you think would be good?! Its worth about 20% of my overall mark so its pretty important!! Thank you to anyone who suggests anything 😄

Think what you know about or are interested in. So if you are a very family orientated person, something like 'The changing lives of girls say to age 16 or 21 over the last 30 or 50 years', You can tackle it chronologically or by topic.

Ask your grandmas aunts, mother about their childhoods, how they regarded their mother, father , brothers , sisters; what games they played, their clothes, what their schooling was like, were they evacuated?, how much freedom they had to go out, what the rules were for dating, what they thought their biggest problems were, which clothes they liked, the changing attitudes to pregnancy in/ out of marriage, what they did in the evening, weekends etc., what pop music was like, where they lived, what toys they had ( or not), what age did they start work

You may need to read some books which tackle this question. Your local library will help you choose.
