IRP Follow Up Questions? – AQA A LEVEL Spanish

My IRP question is ‘To what extent do the beliefs and values portrayed in Frida Kahlo’s paintings contrast with what was expected of women in early 20th century Mexico?’. I’d really love some guidance on what kind of examiner questions to predict?
(My sub topics are: Frida Kahlo’s view of societal norms, the role of women in indigenous society, the effect of european values on the expectations of Mexican women in the early 20th century, communist thoughts on LGBTQ+ rights in the early 20th century, Kahlo’s political activism, her legacy today and male chauvinism in Mexico today)

Any suggestions?
hi !! i had my speaking exam yesterday and the examiner mostly just incorporated the points into a question. and they might ask you to come back to some stuff that you mentioned in your 2 min presentation. i can write a set of questions for you later if youd like?

Hi! I actually did my project on Frida Khalo, what a great artist! I think the key thing with questions is having enough knowledge to actually roll with any question, and secondly to have some things prepared that you can spin into any question. For example, if they ask 'Why did you choose Frida Khalo?' you can say 'Frida Kahlo is a fearless artist that shaped the art movement.... continue' but then if the question was 'How was Frida Kahlo a feminist?' you can say 'Frida Kahlo is a feminist because she was a fearless artist who shaped the art movement' so being able to answer any question by including a paragraph that you're already confident in! Good luck!
