  1. 1. Period is needed after "based." Not a comma! The word "refer" is not correct for this type of command. What do you want someone to do: describe, explain, state and explain, what? Instead of "vision," you could use "view"?

    2. Analyse and outline are two different things. Which do you want?

    3. Wordy and awkward. Try this: Women were in charge of the children's education the the management of the house. Single women with children were ostracised and marginalised as fallen women. [Unless they were widows, of course!]

    4. "have read" is better. The rest is fine.
