Originally it had benefitted Europeans to marry a local noble women, but when the mestizos, people of mixed Indian and European blood, became so common they threatened to overpower the Spaniards, the crown developed a new social system called the sociedad de castas. The hierarchy was now based on heritage along with wealth and political power. Those with more Spanish blood were higher in social status, those without faced discrimination.Through the generations, however, the various combination of European, African, and Native American became so complex it was almost impossible to categorize everyone and this system collapsed. The contrast between Europe and American ethnicities helped to build a new sense of identity. The castas were unlike any others in the world.

In addition to marriage, education is also important, because in India, most women are much less educated than men and are given less opportunities. Usually men go to Universities either in India or overseas to study, more specifically medicine or engineering. In India, much like in various other countries, there are some significant differences in traditions and culture between the North and South of the country.

Evidence that social inequality is responsible for starting the French Revolution is the social condition before the revolution and its impact on the citizens. Privileges were one of the symbols of inequality during the time, the higher classes such as the nobility and the clergy were granted excessive privileges while the commoners on the other hand were given none. One of the famous example of these privileges were taxes, although the monarchy was able to tax the privileged elite before the revolution, the commoners was still burdened by heavy taxes while the clergy are still exempt from paying taxes. Although the clergy and the nobility made up only three percent of the total population, they are the wealthiest classes in the empire thus by the exemption of taxes, it had a big impact on the economy.

It was in conformity with the communist ideology, while also being a political move to gain more support. During the empirical ages, officials and nobilities had enormous privileges compared to commoners. Not only did the latter possess few political, economic or social resources, they struggled for living and justice was beyond reach. As we can see in Farewell My Concubine, during the Warlord Period, which was shortly after the end of the Qing Dynasty (16441911), children in the opera troupe were trained in ruthless manners and harsh conditions in order to get a skill with which they could earn a living; and the former imperial eunuch still had the power and wealth to hold extravagant birthday celebrations and could rape commoners like Dieyi without any legal consequences. Bare survival was the major struggle for many at the bottom of the society and injustice was more than common.
In medieval England, social status and rank are very important in everyday life. There are some things a person is obligated to do because of his/her social rank, and some things a person is forbidden to do because of his/her social class. In the movie, the Knight’s Tale there is a very good example of how social classes can not do certain things beyond their class. William Thatcher, for example cannot technically be a knight by birth because he is born into the lower social class. His father had to give him up as a child into an apprenticeship sort of so he could have a better life.
In the book The Family, Sex, Marriage book it says in most circumstances the eldest son would inherit all of the family’s money. Therefore, the daughters were dependent on getting married. If there were no sons to inherit the money or land, the daughters were possibly considered for that inheritance. However, if that happened, it was still unlikely that the daughters would inherit anything due to the time period; women were not seen as equal to men. Even though money was a huge factor in arranged marriages, another factor was the political stabilization.
An example is when a man wanted a woman he had to pay the most to have her or another man would get her. An example is when Effia’s parents decided to find a way to marry her to James instead of Abeeku because they would get more money out of James (15). There also was a lot of wars between the tribes in this book. The more power a tribe had the more advantages that tribe had. At the end of the book, the people were not as concerned about power because there was not as many wars and slavery was over.

After the French Revolution and the Napoleonic wars it affected composers in several ways. With the war many aristocrats could no longer afford orchestras, private opera houses, and the composers that were residence of those places. The aristocrats were considered the highest class in society at this time. When this happened, it left many composers who originally had steady incomes to now fighting to survive on what little money they could bring in. With the wars having such an impact on the economy composers had to find a way to adapt to the current living situations, and this meant changes to their audience.
Women were expected to be domesticated, to stay behind the scenes and were considered their husband 's property. While men were known to be very sophisticated in public, they had the role of the leader in the house. “Before the Revolution, American society was rigidly and unapologetically hierarchical,” (The Contrast p.4). Where sons of laborers were expected to become laborers themselves and sons of upper class were expected to inherit their fortune. Men understand to look out for the public interest, therefore, social identity before the Revolution was straightforward if you were a servant you had little mobility in society, the wealthy had more mobility in social standings.
If a child lived in an apartment, that child could be the next president because of the imagination that they might have.
