     Generational Gender Role Primary Research Project

     In this research, we will identify at least three people from different generations to take part in the study. So I interviewed my grandmother, my mother and my best friend. They have different opinions about my research questions. It can show the generational gender role in different time clearly. Based on my interest, I choose the study’s topic is appearances. Because, I think the fastest change are clothes. It is easy to show the generational gender role. The research questions are: What kind of clothes

    do you wear? What is your haircut? What kind of things can be popular?

     The first interviewee is my grandmother. During the Labor Day vacation, I went to her home interviewed her and took notes of my grandmothers answers. She answered

    my questions expressly and detailedly.

    The second interviewee is my mother. During the Labor Day vacation, I interviewed her and took notes. She answered my questions and told me about her teenage life.

    The last interviewee is my best friend. She is in Canada now. So I called her and interviewed her. She is a fashion girl. So she gave me some special answers and told me the most popular things in Canada.

    The first question: What kind of clothes do you wear?

    My grandmother was born in 1947.Two years later, New China was established. She told me when she was a teenager, the girls didnt wear colorful clothes. And

    they didnt wear dress. They often wore the blue and gray clothes. They wore very

    simple. I remembered when I learned history, the history books described the clothes called the blue and gray ocean.

    When my mother was a teenager, Chinas situation became better. The girls wore

    the colorful clothes and dresses. They had different kinds of clothes. Some girls were very fashion, they wore the suit.

    My best friend is in Canada now, so she told me now they often wear the sun-tops and jeans. In summer, the girls often wear the mini dresses and the very long dresses. They wear the colorful clothes, and some of the girls dress are very sexy.

    The second question: What is your haircut?

    My grandmother told me in that time, their haircut is short hair or two long braids. Their haircut was simple, too.

    My mother said when she was a teenager her hair was very long. So her haircut is ponytail, sometimes she put her hair down. In that time, somebody would perm their hair.

    My friend told me now they often straighten hair or perm their hair. Some of them also dye their hair. They use the bright color like red, yellow and purple. Their haircuts look like a American famous singer Avril lavigne. They think it is so cool.

     The last question: What kind of things can be popular?

     In my grandmothers generation, the most popular haircut were short hair and two long braids. So they all have the same haircut. The most popular ornament is Chairman MAO memorial medal. It is important for them.

     My mother said in that time the most popular haircut is wild-curl up. Many girls did

    this. The most popular clothes are wool suits. I t was very fashion.

     But now my friend told me the most popular clothes brand is A&F. It is popular all over the world.

     These data shows the generational gender role in different time clearly. The

    generational gender role has changed a lot. It is become more and more fashion and international .It can show the progress and prosperity.
