Elitism is a Social Construct.
It is not relegated to wealth, education, struggle, employment, etc. Elitism can just as easily be associated with an attitude of snobbery or distinction. You can acquire that.
You can attend social events that place you in circles with people of a different pedigree than yourself. You can dress well and in taste of a culture of “higher distinction” than your own. You can become well-versed in different themes of etiquette.
You can read books on wealth, charm, aristocracy, royalty, cosmetology, nobility, collegiate behavior, femininity, the fine arts, luxury living, etc. You can self-educate. You can change your own narrative. You can shift your social standing. This is by mere birthright. We are entitled to do this.
Nobody has to succumb to their surroundings. Nobody has to accept their environment. Nobody has to struggle to reach a mindset, social circle, or air of elitism.

Instead, we see women, in American society and beyond, that actually believe they are only worthy of being whoever their immediate environment has suggested, through subtle programming and repetition, that they should be.
