Fact Sheet Assignment

Create a fact sheet about a topic related to gender, women's studies and sexualities. Your face sheet should be exactly 2 pages. Citations should be on a third page. Your fact sheet may not be longer or shorter; it is two pages because this would serve as a helpful handout for community agencies. This is the kind of document you would produce for a workplace. Your fact sheet will present credible data in a way that narrates a contemporary social issue. That is, your presentation of data tells a story. It should be focused, organized, and thorough. You may present it in point form, in graphs, in charts, or images. Any writing must be grammatically correct. Look carefully at the sample fact sheets on the class Moodle. Each fact sheet must include: a definition of terms, at least two visual representations of data, at least three credible source citations, and enough reliable information to present a basic level of knowledge on the topic. Sources should be footnoted so they don't take up space on the page.

Choose one of these topics:

  • Gender, Race, and Workplace Safety in Canada
  • Gender, poverty, and menstrual health in Canada
  • Gender, Race, and Immigration to Canada
