48467 Basically, it's who has it and who doesn't. And judgements of both. Those who have often "give" but is it authentic. Could it be self-serving for the "haves." deciding who makes into the club and who doesn't. A game?

48467 I did my dissertation on the individual and social inequity in a a small town in the South. I, as expected, found those who have more, get more opportunities to education, wealth opportunities and general "respect." Strangely, however, I found it was women who reached out to challenge this, even if it their attempts are flawed with the feeling that they are benevolent givers. Check out Bourdieu. He talks about volunteerism as way of excusing the existing power structure that is unequal by its nature. Bourdieu is dense but they're are good readers out there.
48467 Thank you Lisa! Totally agree.
