Hi, you should use 2-3 'PERCY' structure paragraphs for your 20 markers and a justified conclusion.
P - Point
E - Evidence/Explain
R - Reference to Sociological Thinker/ Key ideas
C - Criticism/Evaluation
Y - Your link back to the question

As it is an Item question, make sure you reference the item e.g, ' As Item D states 'there has been an increase in older mothers', Feminists would support this as they argue the feminisation of the economy has led to more women prioritising economic independence and a career and no longer see childbearing as a priority. This is supported by Sharpe who studied the change of attitudes of women in the 1970s and the 1990s. Her study revealed that women's priorities had radically changed, where family life, marriage and childbearing were the main priorities to education, economic independence and a successful career.' This would be the E and R to your paragraph. The criticism (C to PERCY) can be a strength or a weakness, so you can include other key thinkers who support Sharpe, such as Wilkinson (who discussed 'genderquake').
