This exercise seeks to sharpen your understanding of what a minority group is.
Respond to the following question in the discussion forum for this module located in the “Discussion Board” link in the “Communication” area of the course.
Do women fit the definition of a minority group or must the concept be restricted to racial and/or ethnic groups to be useful? Why or why not? Defend your answer and support it with empirical data. Respond to at least two postings from classmates.
Post your opening response to the question early in the assignment period so that others have time to respond to you.
A thoughtful opening response will consider:
The notion that this question is not about the relationship between a man and a woman but about the relationship between men and women.That numbers don’t necessarily define a minority, but could numbers have something to do with it?
