I’m studying for my Political Science class and need an explanation.
Question: Identify a problem facing women, or another gender-related issue, that you would like to analyze and address this term. Describe the problem, providing data and evidence to support your claims regarding the “unsatisfactory set of conditions” you have observed, either in your local community, elsewhere in the state, or nationally (Kraft 125). Please do the readings prior to completing this assignment, as you are required to incorporate the assigned materials into your post.
**************To be frank, this paper is the foundation of the grading for this class. I screwed up and took 11 classes this semester and have been unable to allocate my time towards this class properly. Must receive A level work for this paper, and that is why I am willing to spend so much on this bid. The four “weeks” of work all build off of each other to submit one final paper. Truly it should take 5 hours of hard work, but I am offering 10 hours at a $30 rate with an 8 day total to complete this work. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or help that you need on my end. **************

The purpose of this assignment is to demonstrate an ability to recognize and attempt to solve a public problem using the policy analysis process, as articulated by Kraft & Furlong.
There are five steps in the policy analysis process:

- Construct policy alternatives (Review: Week 5)
- Develop evaluative criteria (Review: Week 6)
- Assess the alternatives
- Draw conclusion
Your task in this policy brief is to
- identify and analyze a problem (in the area of Gender or Women’s policy),
- construct policy alternatives to solve that problem,
- develop criteria by which you will evaluate those alternatives,
- assess your alternatives (based on the chosen evaluative criteria), and finally,
- draw a conclusion as to which of the alternatives developed in Step 2 is most appropriate for addressing the problem.
- In approximately five double-spaced pages, apply ALL FIVE steps of the policy analysis process to the problem you selected.
- Please use the problem you chose in Week 4.
