1) We spent a while talking about health inequality in this class. We also spent a while talking about gender inequality. Please describe two different specific examples of ways that health inequality and gender inequality are related. Really value thinking of creative examples here, so don’t be afraid to think outside the box. Also, please try to relate your example to social forces rather than biological ones! Remember, gender and health both come from society, so your answer should reflect this.

2) the importance of history when thinking about social conflict. Please identify one major social issue of our contemporary moment (say, in the past 10 years), and give me three specific ways in which that social issue has emerged from previous generations. Here are some things you can think about to get started : political/governmental decisions or laws, changing cultural norms, or major historical events.
