The Effects of Segregation
The general definition of segregation is to be separated from others, usually because of gender, belief, or race.
Segregation is not only expressed by separation based on race, but can also be expressed by gender and social separation. Things such as disregarding people who are women by not giving them the same rights as men, or out-casting people who are different can be categorized under segregation.
