Sociology Semester Project

In the 1950s, women were often expected to settle down and have a family, despite having the same education as men. They were expected to be a housewife as well instead of going out and working, The men were the ones who brought home all the money.
While also in the 1950s, some inequalities were directed towards racial disputes, such as the Civil Rights Movement and the struggles to get segregation. These two events are connected because they both show how these things at least somewhat changed through the years, but still have problems with today.
These topics affect my life because as a mixed race girl, I can face inequalities as well as society ridiculing me about gender roles, because I go against the stereotypical feminine traits. Socilization also has a role in my life, for it is the reason I act the way I do.
