SOCIAL EQUITY RESEARCH PROBLEM
I need some help with a research paper that I am doing that is due this wednesday. It has to be not less than four pages not more than 7 pages. The statement is 'argue that social inequality is the root of all social problems'. I am not sure what key points I should discuss to argue this point. I was wondering if I should talk about class, gender etc that deals with social inequality.
I would really appreciate it if you could give me some advice or suggestions on how to tackle this paper or the argument.
Because this is a narrowly defined topic, you might want to look at its parts separately, to begin with. For instance, in order to argue that social inequality is the root of all social problems, you might want first to define what "social inequality" means. What makes people socially unequal? What effect does this have on them? Then, you could go on to the next part and discuss what kinds of social problems arise from this inequality. Certainly, class, gender, and probably ethnicity could figure into this discussion.
Also, any time you are writing a research paper which requires citing sources, it's a good idea to do a bit of preliminary research first, before you begin writing, so that you do not set off on a course for which is difficult to find sources. Do some internet searches with terms like "social inequality" and "causes of social problems" in order to get an idea of which way you're heading.
I hope this helps get you started!
