Society has always faced people who are dominant because of their superiority in the physical ability or even their leadership qualities. This was seen thorough out the period of the ancient man as he needed to have a leader to take care of the primitive form of society then. It was with the arrival or religions and money that social divisions became prominent. Let us get into a more contemporary state of the phenomenon with relevant examples.
Before we get into any serious discussion under this caption let us confine ourselves to a period between 1950 and 2009 AD. The period can be considered relevant for the studies as it witnessed a whole lot of events which are so dense that any respect of topics can get enough material for their further discussion from this period.
Revolutionary developments in the field of science, technology, arts and even human life have occurred in these 59 years. 1950 witnessed the post World war effects while 2009 suffers recession whose reasons are yet a confusing topic to the scholars even. 1950 was believed to be an advanced turn to technology as all the embryonic developments of modern life had taken birth buy then. Communication field had taken birth in a pretty remarkable way by then. Money was flowing around. People had learnt to live well.

The dark hands of social division have not yet released the innocent suppressed class from its hurting catch. Let us move on to these two approaches of social divisions and then move forth with the topic.
Social division based on gender:
Gender based social division is a topic which we listened countless times and has a lot more to discuss still. Gender based bias is a headache to any form of life. Women are seen with a lower status in the society in any part of the world. It happens in the developed, developing and underdeveloped nations. There has been a steep growth in the graph of violence against women in the past few years. It is not only with the case of violence or such extreme factors that women are facing difficulties but they also face difficulties of social division in family, at work and even in the society.
