It provides me with a social identity and finally it regulates sexual reproduction and sexual activity through norms that prevent sex within the family. On the conflict perspective it reinforces inequality through promotion of patriarchy and wealth inheritance by giving the boy child priority (Giddens, Duneier, Appelbaum & Carr, 2000).
