Race, Class and Gender: three loaded terms which have more or less determined the fate of the entire patriarchal world since the beginning of time. they are not only inextricably intertwined with each other but also share a parasitic relationship. it is virtually impossible to want the removal of the inequalities associated with one without desiring so for the other. the book Race, Class and Gender in the United States manages to point out these and many more issues.
