Q: Where should I place a colon in my dissertation title?

Detailed Question -

My dissertation is about the role of female celebrities entrepreneurs and their role in constructing gender identity from a feminist point of view. I put the colon like this: Female celebrities entrepreneurs and gender identity: A feminist perspective

1 Answer to this question

The placement of the colon in your title is fine; however, the phrase "celebrities entrepreneurs" is incorrect. If you are referring to celebrities who have become successful entrepreneurs, you should use the phrase "celebrity entrepreneurs." Thus, the title should be Female celebrity entrepreneurs and gender identity: A feminist perspective. However, please bear in mind that my comments are just on the grammar and word choice; I do not have any views on whether the title is suitable for your topic.
