The section in the reading that was most interesting for me to read and learn more about was on gender inequality and gender stratification. Gender stratification is when men are more dominant while the women are subordinate in society. Like the reading says, it's "tempting" or almost easy for all people to view male dominance as "natural", as M&G explain on page 296. This all relates to social norms revolving around power. It was new to me that in societies where the women were in charge of growing and controlling the access to food, they were viewed as equal to the men. Anthropologist Ernestine Friedl is who discovered this connection.
