It is generally agreed that in a generic sense the concept social stratification refers to a structure of differential rankings which seems to occur in all societies. That is a structure exists of regularized inequality in which men are ranked higher and lower according to the value accorded their various social roles and activities through the process of self-and-other differentiation and ranking.
