  • 12. ETHNICITY AND THE USE OF SPACE
    Geography and Ethnicity
    Territory is a basis for ethnic group cohesions.

  • 13. GENDER, CLASS AND VULNERABILITY

    2) It is a category reflecting the social differences between men and women.
    3) It implies a socially created difference in power between groups.
    4) Power difference -> gives males an advantage over females.
    This is socially and culturally created.
  • 14. GENDER, CLASS AND VULNERABILITY

    Poor women are relatively more vulnerable than men to malnourishment, because women are less likely to have access to food compared to men. Higher class women have relatively more access to resources than poor women.
    Thus: Poor women are the most severely affected.
