Social inequality focuses on the structural sources and individual consequences of racism, sexism and economic exploitation in society, as well as the social processes sustaining these inequities. Professional sociologists use a holistic approach to analyze power dynamics and systems of oppression in society, and ways that social policies can address and reduce these inequalities.
