1. Your 1st paragraph should open with examples (but dont call them examples) of different kinds of sacrifices. You can use examples from Greek iterature, the bible, the koran, and different religions around the world. You should have about 10-12 different things.

2. Next, say these are all examples of sacrifices and now give a dictionary definition of the concept of sacrifice.

3. Next, discuss what different philosophies/ writers/religion leaders have said about the purpose or purposes of sacrifice in general.

4. Next, discuss the reasons/purpose of sacrifice in different religions.

5. Next, state the purpose of the present study (See the title above). In order to do this you will need to lay out the literature as follows:

7. Next, discuss the importance of beauty /physical attractiveness (there are theorectical articles on this) and how important it is to people and why. Is there any research on self-sacrifices and beauty/physical attractive (Chinese foot-binding, african long neck stretching all for the sake of beauty.)

8. Next, once you have layed out the mportance of beauty and what kind of different things in different cultures people do(sacrifice) to be beautiful. You can move on to god, vanity, sacrifice.

9. Next, you want to discuss that if beauty is so important, if God or a higher power asked people to sacrifice their earthly beauty for heavenly rewards and if heaven is important, what would they do especially woman.
