The student analyzed the lyrics of rapper, Eminem. Here is what she noticed was about his treatment of women in these lyrics:

*Vulgar language
*Violence & rape
*Talks about celebrities
*Hyper-sexualization
*Woman-blaming

'''All these different aspects could be placed under a broader category: general misogyny (please look this up if you don't know what it means)!'''

!!PLEASE NOTE IF YOU DO THIS THOROUGHLY, IT WILL NECESSARILY TAKE UP A LOT OF SPACE ON THE PAGE. THE IDEA IS TO DIG DEEP ON A FOCUSED, NARROWED TOPIC. STUDENTS TYPICALLY LIKE TO PICK EXTREMELY BROAD TOPICS, WHICH MEANS THEY CAN ONLY EXAMINE THEM IN A VERY SUPERFICIAL WAY.
