What is a social hierarchy?
Social Hierarchies can be found in every society or even within different groups of people. Think of the movie Mean Girls (view clip below), even within one school you would be able to find social hierarchies that exist.
In the Mean Girls clip, you can see how the school is divided into multiple groups. These groups could also be place on a social pyramid or social hierarchy. If you did this, the groups within the clip could be place in order of importance or power. Those groups with the most power and importance would be placed at the top and those groups with the least power or importance towards the bottom.
