Q: What does hierarchy mean?
A: a hierarchy is a social order from least powerful to most powerful. If you imagine society as a triangle you'll see people without a good job on the bottom where the triangle is really wide, people with more status go in the middle and so on until you get to the top where there is only the president/king.

it's a triangle because the first group has little power but there's a lot of people in it, while there is only one person on the very top.

when people talk about something being very hierarchical they mean that there are a lot of these 'levels of power' and they have a lot of impact on people's lives (for example if you are expected to marry within your level, or if you shouldn't talk to people outside of your level).

hierarchical is the opposite of egalitarian where people are all treated as equals.
