  1. The domestic setting in L1 emotionally enhances the them of "hertory" explored in Ls 2&3.

    Note: below is excerpted from the Wikipedia entry, entitled Herstory:

    Herstory or hertory is history written from a feminist perspective, emphasizing the role of women, or told from a woman's point of view. It is a neologism coined in the late 1960s as part of a feminist critique of conventional historiography, with the word "history" reinterpreted, using a false etymology, as "his story." (The word "history"—from the Ancient Greek ἱστορία, or historia, meaning "knowledge obtained by inquiry"—is etymologically unrelated to the possessive pronoun his.)
