Lecture 4 from the “Gender and Sexuality Studies” Course
Gender inequalities is among the leading questions in sociology. Although absent from early sociological texts, the topic of inequalities between men and women became extremely relevant in the 20th century as a result of the industrial economy, military conflicts and social movements for equality. In the fourth lecture of the course, basic sociological concepts about the influence of education, religion and the media on inequalities between men and women will be examined. The main objectives of the lecture are: (1) to examine the role of education in the reproduction of gender stereotypes and the main goals of inclusive education; (2) to analyze in a comparative perspective the regulation of men and women in fundamental religions and to present reformist religious movements that problematize religious texts; (3) to analyze the ways in which the media reproduce and reinforce inequalities between men and women and the policies to overcome them.
