What is the Difference between Mores and Folkways?

Folkways are one of two types of norms, the other being Mores, which are much more strictly enforced than folkways. Generally conformity to folkways is ensured by gentle social pressure and imitation. Breaking or questioning a folkway does not cause severe punishment, but may cause the person to be laughed at, frowned upon, or scolded. In western culture, folkways include (but are not limited to) wearing gender-appropriate clothing, respecting the privacy of strangers, and eating food with the proper utensil. Mores are more strongly enforced and there may be harsh punishment for breaking them
