Explore the place of gender in the two books.

In a well-organized essay of 4-6 pages, respond to the statement listed below. Be sure to provide references and examples from both texts. As such you are responsible for the entirety of Distance Between Us (By Reyna Grande) and Farewell to Manzanar (By Jeanne Wakatsuki Houston and James D. Houston). Since this is a take-home assignment, grammar, spelling, and the like will carry more weight in the computation of the final grade than is the case for an exam.
Explore the place of gender in the two books noted above. In other words, does it matter that the two authors are female when it comes to explaining their experiences? Your argument should have a clear and decisive point that has the support of textual evidence from both books. It is not enough to say being a woman plays a part in both texts or something similar. Rather, you need to propose your own idea(s) about how and why their sex matters, if at all, and what the significance of this reality is as it relates to each text.
