I did mine on women's history (over 100 years) but I can share my intro if it'll help with general structure ideas?


What's your question?

“The use of terror was the only genuine method of effective control in Russia between 1881 - 1991” To what extent do you agree?

Interesting question! I structure mine entirely chronologically in 10 year chunks per large paragraph, which might help manage it.

I don't know if this is helpful, but I'll share my intro in case it gives you an idea on how to get started.
My question was:
"“By 1960, the concept of the angel in the house had been completely eradicated.”
Within the context of 1854 to 1960, to what extent is this an accurate representation of the change in British Women’s social position?"

And my intro was:
In 1854, Coventry Patmore’s narrative poem “Angel in the House” was published, and within it, there was a reflection of the ideal Victorian woman. The “Angel” archetype of the Middle Class domestic goddess widely influenced culture of this period, as male artists and writers portrayed the naïve, innocent female and the economically dependent Middle Class wife entirely favourably and idealistically. This idealisation of domesticity and the unenlightened purity of the feminine is widely considered to have passed by 1960, considered to be working, with improved standards of living and more social individuality brought about by the political freedom of the vote. However, the mother, wife and domesticated ‘angel’ did not disappear, but instead became surreptitiously ingrained into societal norms of a woman’s personal life. She is demonstrated in the idolisation of naïve and home focussed femininity that lasted for decades, an idolisation that was still not truly shifted by 1960.

I used sources as my base for everything, and I began with a source. That might help you get started?
