  2. (formerly, in most European countries) a section of a city in which all Jews were required to live.
  3. a section predominantly inhabited by Jews.
  4. any mode of living, working, etc., that results from stereotyping or biased treatment: job ghettos for women; ghettos for the elderly.

adjective
  1. pertaining to or characteristic of life in a ghetto or the people who live there: ghetto culture.
