Social Inequalities - Gender, Class, Ethnicity

Social Inequalities - Gender, Class, Ethnicity

A 442 slide presentation (that's right, four hundred and forty two) on social inequalities in relation to gender, class and ethnicity. The presentation covers a wealth of sociologists, key concepts and theories. The amount of time and effort I have put in to these is overwhelming (it is all created by myself), and all YOU have to do is download the presentation for a very reasonable fee. I assure you they are worth every penny.
