American Sociological Association

Race, Gender and Class


The purpose of the Section Race, Gender, and Class is bifold: first, to promote research that examines the interactive effects of race, gender, and class phenomena; second to promote a curriculum which underscores the centrality of race, gender and class phenomena. By comparing the similarities and differences in how inequalities of race and ethnicity, gender, class, and stratification are created and maintained, sociologists can develop a more powerful explanation of the nature of social inequality in general.
