About this Unit
Social inequality arising from the operations of power creates patterns of unequal participation and unequal access of people to economic, social and political resources, in different ways in different societies and cultures. These processes raise fundamental theoretical issues, as well as matters of serious practical concern. This unit will critically examine theoretical analyses of different kinds of inequalities, including class, race, ethnicity, gender, and sexuality.
