Well, as an Enotes Educator, I cannot write your introduction for you, but I can give you some good ideas to help you begin to write your own.

My suggestion is that you begin with some information about Julia Alvarez as an author, and how she would connect to women's rights. Take a look at our page on Julia Alvarez. I have included the link at the bottom. Here you will find some good information about women's rights and how Alvarez was interested in them. For example, I would talk a little bit about Julia Alvarez's early life in the Dominican Republic under the Trujillo dictatorship. In fact, perhaps the first line of your introduction could be one of the deplorable quotes by this dictator. You can hone your introduction down to Julia Alvarez's ideas about women's rights within the Dominican Republic, and then within the United States where she escaped to.

Of course, you should end your introduction with a thesis statement. My guess, according to your question, is that your thesis statement should look something like this: Julia Alvarez shows herself as an author very interested in women's rights both in the Dominican Republic and in America as exhibited in the characters of her novel. I wish you all the luck as you write your essay. Hopefully this will help you get started on your introduction!
