Gender & Stratification: The Effects of Social Marginalization -- Research Starters Sociology

By: Thompson, Sherry;

2009 / EBSCO


A myriad of studies indicate American women do not enjoy the same opportunities to attain high status positions as do American men. As researchers seek to understand how gender impacts social stratification, they often overlook the fact that workplace status is not a valid indicator of a woman's social class. Social stratification of women encompasses a complex mix of factors including her spouse's socioeconomic status, how she handles her private realm responsibilities, her personal workplace status, and how she has been socialized to a position of marginalization or empowerment during her adolescence. This paper focuses on the impacts of the marginalization of adolescent girls.
