What social psychology term derived from the circumstances of Kitty Genovese Case? Describe.
Kitty Genovese was a woman who was murdered in New York City in the 1960s. She was stabbed to death outside of her apartment building in plain view. After the investigation the New York Times reported that many of Kitty's neighbors either saw or heard her attack and failed to intervene. This led psychologists to name this indifference or failure to intervene in social situations or crisis, "The Bystander Effect."

What is privilege?
Privilege is a benefit, right, or advantage granted to a particular person or group of people. Privilege can be based on race, gender, class, sexual orientation, age, ability, beauty standards, religion, education and more. When groups or types of people are divided by the categories they fit into i.e. white and black, male and female, young and old etc. they can also receive privilege or privileges based on that category or group if one category is valued OVER another. For example, in a patriarchal society liked the United States men and women are divided with the valued category being men. Based on this division of value men hold the privilege in a patriarchal society. This privilege has allowed men to hold power in a patriarchal society and has created gender inequity. Allowing men to have social, economic and political advantages over women. This is usually called "male privilege."
