Change and Development in Industrial Society

Question

‘Industrialisation leads to equality’. Briefly explain the both sides of the statement.

Answer

(i) Industrializations leads to greater equality, at least in some spheres. For example, caste distinctions do not matter any more on trains, buses or in cyber cafes. On the other hand, older forms of discrimination may persist even in new factory or workplace settings.

(ii) And even as social inequalities are reducing economic or income inequality is growing in the world. Often social inequality and income inequality overlap, for example, in the domination of upper caste men in well-paying professions like medicine, law or journalism. Women often get paid less than men for similar work.
