Each individual has their own different social identity. One’s social identity is constructed based on the different influences around them. The development of social identity is influenced by various factors such as the historical, cultural and religious beliefs of the society, community or family where one is brought up.

The society we live in determines everything about who we are, from the way we behave and think to the way we interact with others. From the minute we are brought into the world we are grouped into categories such as gender, ethnicity, and class, and society teaches us how to behave according to the group we are either born into or join. Society also teaches us generalizations about other groups and how to interact with them, creating stereotypes. While stereotypes can help us identify similarities within a culture and aid as a foundation for learning about people different than oneself, they can also lead to prejudice and discrimination. A stereotype is “a generalization applied to persons perceived to have attributes common to a particular group” (Beebe 47.)

Throughout my life I have experienced many different things that have helped me to shape my social location starting with when I moved here at the age of twelve.

Furthermore, a community is split into groups due to prejudice and the groups are classified by race, wealth, age and gender.
Throughout the play Macbeth, Shakespeare uses many metaphors and examples about gender and traditional gender roles to show us how the two main characters, Macbeth and Lady Macbeth, change throughout the piece and become different people. At the beginning of the play, both Macbeth and Lady Macbeth have many characteristics that are usually associated with the opposite gender. Shakespeare creates these gender roles to show how the characters change many of their behaviors when they are confronted with stress and power. He specifically picks these roles based on how he wants to portray these character’s views and how he wants them to fit to a common gender guideline for that era.

Norms are the means through which values are expressed in behavior. Norms generally are the rules and regulations that groups live by.

The use of intersectionality is crucial in challenging oppression and inequality, as it tackles it from an institutional level.
