What is Equality?
The state of having the same rights, opportunities, and treatment as others, without any discrimination, regardless of their race, gender, religion, is called equality. Equality can be achieved through two ways:
- Legal frameworks
- Social and cultural norms
The best way to achieve equality is through a legal system that prohibits discrimination, and guarantee equal rights to education, employment, healthcare, and other basic services. Besides, sometimes, social and cultural norms favoring equality and respect for diversity can also help in achieving equality.
What psychologists say about Equality?
Recent researches by psychologists highlight some key findings about equality:
- Equality promotes mental health
- Inequality leads to social disturbances
- Equality is a fundamental human right
- Diversity enhances equality
A feeling of equality promotes mental health of people by lowering stress, and anxiety. On the other hand, the very feeling of Inequality leads to many social problems such as crime, poor health, and social unrest. Indeed, equality and fairness is a fundamental need of humanity. It is also true that equality flourishes under diversity as it increases exposure to different perspectives, and promotes empathy
What are the drawbacks of equality?
According to psychologists, there are some drawbacks related to equality which must also be considered:
- Difficult to achieve
- It lead to uniformity
- It can breed resentment
- It can overlook individuality
- It requires financial resources
Achieving a perfect state of equality seems to be a difficult task, even with a strong legal policy. Also, in some cases, equality can lead to a focus on uniformity rather than recognizing diversity. This situation may neglect unique talents. For that reason, equality can breed resentment among individuals or groups who feel that they are not receiving special treatment that they deserve. Besides, creating a state of equality requires significant investment, particularly in education, healthcare, and infrastructure.
