CHAPTER 1- WHAT IS SOCIETY AND CULTURE?
Intro to society and culture:
o The central concern of Society and Culture in stage 6 is the interaction of persons, societies, cultures, environments and time.
o Through understanding the interaction, you will begin to understand yourself, the society and culture around you, and the societies and cultures of others around them.
o We also recognise four other concepts that are vital to society and culture. These are power, authority, gender and technology.
o This concept refers to the way people organise themselves. For example, the people who make up Australian society are linked through institutions, media networks and sporting organisations.

In the society during past ages, girls and women in the society were faced with several problems due to the cultural beliefs that existed. According to research, many girls and women were used as sexual objects by the professionals, who instead of doing their jobs, violated the rules and regulations governing their work and professional sexual ethical standards. This lowered the dignity of women in the society, which has changed with time as the girls and women are now learned and are aware of their rights in the society. Education has helped improve their living standards and reduce the oppression they are facing in their homes, from the professionals and in the society.
