Survival rates and loss of life pursuant to the famous Titanic sinking can be said to provide insight into social classes. Among first-class passengers, only 3 percent of women died and no children lost their lives. Among third-class passengers, 45 percent of the women died and 70 percent of children lost their lives. In total, 76 percent of the third class passengers died and 40 percent of first class passengers dies. Based on these passengers, what implications would you draw regarding the impact of social classes? Is it a relevant factor that third-class passengers were restricted to lower decks so they were farther away from the lifeboats than the first-class passengers were? Explain.
