Poverty and Labor from Sociological Perspectives

How well do Marxist perspectives explain poverty?

Compare with alternative sociological perspectives. Do functionalist or feminist perspectives explain the division of domestic labor better? Explain and justify your answer using examples. Analyze the ways in which social institutions and social divisions are generated, constructed, and maintained. Review the experience and impact of social inequality on the health status or life chances of individuals, groups, and societies. Appraise theoretical perspectives to explain the origins and impact of social divisions and social problems.
