Because of the depth and breadth of this paper, spending a few minutes to devise a plan will save you time in the long run. A good place to start is with encyclopedias to gather background information about the country you're studying and the gender issues that are prevalent there. Visit this guide's Background Resources page for more information.
After getting a general idea of what areas to explore within the country and gender issue you've chosen, a good next step is searching the library catalog to find books discussing gender issues in your country. Reading sections/chapters of the book will help you understand the context of the issue and give you ideas of what specific categories of PESTLE you might want to explore more deeply. Visit this guide's Books & eBooks page for more information.
Once you've spent some time with books, journal databases are a logical next step for finding specific information on your issue/topic. You may need to consult several different databases to explore different PESTLE categories within your issue. This guide's Journal Articles page will provide support in finding the journals you need.
In addition to the scholarly information found in books and journals, you'll also need data to back up your assertions. These can be found on the Gender & Country Data page in this guide. News Sources may also be useful in research, but be certain you're using reliable news sources.
