Transcript of Victimization Through Race, Class, and Gender.

Male Economic Privilege
"In 2010, women earned 76.5 cents for every dollar that men did last year, moving no closer to narrowing a gender pay gap that has barely budged in almost a decade."-Brenda Cronin
, The Wall Street Journal
Gender Equality?
In a general sense, men are more likely to be victimized than women. However that is not the case in domestic violence, (Barak, Leighton, & Flavin, 2010, p. 177). This is according to our text book Class, race, gender, and crime, the social realities of justice in America.
Socioeconomic conditions & Prestige = Class

Blau (1982) stated "
if there is a culture of violence, its roots are pronounced economic inequalities, especially if associated with ascribed position (pg. 159).
Objectification of Women in Cultural Spheres
Victimization Through Class, and Gender.

When women try and stand up for their rights they get called names like "feminazi". Yet, if a man were to stand up for women's rights, he may be thought of as less of a man, but he's more likely to be heard
he's a man.
This is all talked about more in depth in a Ted Talk linked in the next slide.
Property Crime Rates

-Cultural attitudes/rhetoric portraying women as hyper-sexualized.
-Objectification of the female body through film further reaffirms cultural attitudes.

only what everybody else can see,
you can be said to be so much a representative of your culture
that you are a victim of it."
~S.I. Hayakawa

Sexual harassment in the workplace
While Affirmative Action legislation has tried to even the playing field for equal employment opportunity, sexual harassment and animosity between male and female co-workers restrict mobility and equality for women in male-dominated professions (i.e. law enforcement, military). Below is a comedic skit by Comedy Central's Amy Schumer that touches on this issue. Click the link below to check out her skit:

In regards to recent political debate, dubbed the war on women" women are vying for control of reproductive rights in a male-dominated political sphere, without a voice or choice in regards to their own bodies:
"Reproductive rights are "fundamental rights" that should receive the highest level of protection because they are related to "the right to bodily integrity, the right to privacy
(including the right to an abortion) and the right to procreate"(Barak, Leighton, and Flavin).
