Start the essay from your own knowledge and understanding, but then begin to use some of the terminology (for example gender construction, intersectionality or intersectional analysis, patriarchy, hegemony or hegemonic ideologies of gender, race, class, etc.) in the essay.
Consider the following questions:
◦What story is told by the text (image, ad, film)?
◦What happens? (Literally a summary – this happens, then this happens, then ….)
◦ What judgements are made about what happens? About characters?
◦Which characters are rewarded? Punished? Respected/Disrespected?
◦Is it a variation of common story?
◦How does the text produce meaning? (What can we point to in the text that supports our interpretation?)
◦How are gender, sexual orientation, race, class, and other aspects of identity & power encoded in the text? (Again, what details in the text support your interpretation?)
◦Do characters conform to gender expectations? Violate them? (Is this conforming or violating depicted as good, or bad?)
Also, your response should provide evidence from the text (ad or scene) to support your analysis.
