Exploring Inequality: A Sociological Approach uses a sociological lens to explore the topics of diversity and social inequality. This sociological perspective demonstrates how social identities--like sex, gender, sexuality, race and ethnicity, social class, and disability status--are socially constructed. The book also focuses on social inequality, illustrating how individual forces at the micro-level--along with structural factors on the macro-level--often perpetuate inequalities. In so doing, it shows that power and privilege, along with face-to-face meetings and interactions, structure the unequal worlds in which we live. Exploring Inequality explains how identities and inequalities that we take for granted are never static, but always changing-and how everyday examples of activism work to erode these inequalities.
