Vissing (2011) states, “a society needs a variety of social institutions in order to functionadequately. However, it does appear that not all citizens have equal access to participation inthem, and that one’s social class and ascribed characteristics may limit one’s ability to benefitfrom them. This disparity results in unequal access to all that the institutions have to offer” (p.197). Review the various social institutions discussed in Chapter Four of the text, Introduction toSociology.
