Competing theoretical perspectives part 2 continued

How powerful are the structures you’ve identified? Let’s examine one of them –  income and social class. What income would you argue does a family needs in order to have a acceptable standard of living?

If you think the above clip is about a world that no longer exists, then examine the next clip.

What do you conclude from this? Are there any structures which limit individuals? Or are women faced with more structural hurdles than men?

What do all these clips have in common? Are their arguments valid? However is there an argument individuals can overcome these structural barriers?
