PLEASE READ THE LECTURES ATTACHED IN ORDER TO ANSWER AND REFERENCE LECTURES, INCITE CITATION. READ INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY

This is your fifth and final Individual Report for this course. For this IR you will be answering multiple questions. For all questions you will need to apply critical thinking along with course material. Even though after reviewing both corresponding lectures (Lecture 10 and 11) you will have more insight into this topic the first question correlates to Lecture 10 and the second question includes a more free thinking approach, which correlates to Lecture 11.

Answer these two questions:

  • What do racism, sexism, and heterosexism have in common, and how do they differ? (Please go beyond the obvious commonalities and differences, we all know they are “isms”)
  • What would be the social, economical, cultural, or political effects of raising and equalizing the social standing of women in this society? (You can choose one or more perspective)
