This chapter explores the concern of inequalities in human history and throughout the globe. It aims to be a holistic perspective upon the inequality phenomenon with its multi-faceted aspects. The authors analyze capitalism and its main inequalities and question the origin of inequalities, their determinants, and their evolution across the history and nations. Within this context, the authors raise awareness of gender inequality as a component of the inequality concept. The authors undertook a systematic and unsystematic literature review to investigate the concept of inequality with its aspects and the role of capitalism in creating and supporting inequalities. An in-depth analysis was conducted by authors on both inequality and strategy in order to highlight gaps in the knowledge and to indicate trends for further research. Across the centuries there was a range of inequalities within the countries and between different countries, as well as between social categories, between men and women, between rich and poor.
