Poverty, HIV/AIDS and gender-based violence intersect at the fault lines of our everyday existence. In post-apartheid South Africa mainly African women still live in abject poverty. On the international front the dichotomy between developed and developing countries highlights differences in power relations. People in developing countries are no more irresponsible about their sexual intimacies. In a social group setting, oppression may be based on many ideas, such as poverty, gender, class, race, or other categories. Oppression by institution, or systematic oppression, is when the laws of a place create unequal treatment of a specific social identity group or groups.

  A person can have strong beliefs in favor of social equality and still practice oppression through their actions. In many cases, these categories of oppression overlap in such a way that one person can potentially deal with multiple forms of oppression and privilege at the same time. The essay will then turn to a discussion of religion, poverty, and then finally war in order to demonstrate the importance of gender relations in the study of politics and society.

Oppression ends if the benefits to oppressors decline, or if technological change raises the fighting power of oppressed groups. I use indicators of human rights abuses in countries to examine the empirical determinants of gender, political and ethnic oppression along with the impact of oppression of poverty.

I find that oppression declines with income, and that it is highly correlated with religious rules. Surprisingly, perhaps, this did not include any specific discussion of gender differences in the causes, extent and experience of poverty.

But such gender differences do exist, though they are Author: Jane Millar. Books on Poverty and Inequality Keeping the Dream Alive: The Cases and Causes of the Southern Poverty Law Center by.

This article explores the influence of politics and institutions on poverty and inequality. It first considers the general contention that poverty is shaped by the combination of power resources and institutions.

On one hand, scholars in the power resources tradition have emphasized the role of class-based collective political actors for mobilizing “power resources” in the state and by: 4. The causes of women's poverty operate at different levels or exist at different poverty "sites".

At the level of society in general -including labour markets and the political power -due to institutionalised discrimination; at community level where social rules affect the roles and responsibilities of men and women and at household level where.
