Watch 12 Years a Slave. Write and attach a 3-4 page, double space college level essay. Focus on the treatment of women and children and
write your essay based on the questions below.
1). Did the male slaves defend the women and children, why or why not?
2). What role did gender play in assigning jobs and chores on the plantation? How old did children begin to work?
3). Did sexual assault/rape occur in this movie, and what impact did it have on the women, children, and slave community?
You must provide examples of the treatment in your essay using information from your textbook reading assignments and the Pearson
articles. These sources, along with the movie, will support your responses.
