Social class is a significant theme in a Inspector calls. Priestley uses a variety of ways to show this to the audience. For example, the Birlings show no "remorse" towards the death of Eva smith. The reason for this is because Eva is lower class compared to the Birlings. Also, she is a woman.. Woman had no rights in the 1912 This shows that in the 1912 woman were seen as inferiors.
