Starla Eckhardt, TA: Danny Cardoza, Sec 001, 4 February 2015, Interview #1--Inequality Inequality is a topic that is talked about quite a lot in today's world; the issues it encompasses are older than civilization, perhaps as old as humanity itself. Politicians, anthropologists, psychologists, every other social scientist, and others have all tried to figure out the cause of it, though most have succeeded only in studying the effects. Here at Brigham Young University, professors are teaching the rising generation what they know and how we can alleviate the problem starting now, but more importantly than that, they attempt to provide the thinking tools required to solve this problem on our own.

Granted, all four people that I interviewed come from similar backgrounds, but I think that this speaks not only to our culture but our time period. Morning Sunshine's example was that a women has the

To add to this, she talked about how some people seek "superiority" by wanting to do everything that another person or group can do. Her case in point was that of women not being able to play football professionally with men because "men are built better for football." Her point was that while "no
