Document Summary

Power structures and values, not biology, determine social position of males and females. Patterns of gender inequality should be changed, barrier addressed, opportunities equalized. Modernism (thomson: enlightenment) has not fulfilled its promise of rational, free, and equal society. Therefore, all assumptions (rationality, universality, belief in progress) and results of modern thought should either be deconstructed or rejected. Stresses the validity of subjective meaning: there is not truth about society (cf. positivism) and all perceptions/interpretations of it are equally valid. Extreme post-modernism: society does not exist only people"s perceptions and interpretations of it exists. Socialization is a lifelong, interactive process whereby human beings become members of society. Outcomes of socialization: developing a sense of self: an individual identity i. e. awareness of ideas & attitudes about one"s personal & social identity; and. Social interaction (cognitive & emotional skills, expectations about behaviour in different situations), statuses, roles, norms. Relative importance of heredity & social processes in development of human characteristics (individual & collective)
