The chief part of equity is equality.

For centuries the notion of equality has been present in philosophers, scholars, and enlightened individuals. Even in times in which slavery was predominant, futurists could visualize a society built over the foundation of egalitarianism. In fact, the creation of democratic governments around the globe is significant of the pursuit of this state of affairs.

Nonetheless, the distribution of the valuable resources required to attain so-called right has been significantly unfair and preferential. Western, P. (1982) states that, “it has been suggested that equality as a standalone principle has little impact on combating substantive disadvantage.” In this sense referring to the approach of equality that calls for recognition of the inequality rooted in political, social and economic divisions between men and women (or other groups) and dramatic change to address the inequality. (Marie, E. 2013) Thereby, one can only infer that multiple resources must be integrated to make certain that society is disposed to structuring unbiased communities.

Even more, the structuring of exemplar processes of social distribution depends on the partition of these resources. Actually, it is specifically determined by equity. However, equity might have multiple definitions with respect to the social elements of the same structure. By way of illustration, some organizations categorize this quality within the most important elements of the social structure. Below a short definition of the concepts entailed by principles (as provided by Vega, D., 2011):

Institutions. These are established patterns of human relationships. These include things like family and politics that provide set ways for us to interact with one another.

Social groups. These are smaller groups that have something in common with one another. This could be something as small as a family or as large as a religion.

Status. Within each social group, people have different statuses. You can, for example, be the child in a family or you can be the husband.

Roles. These are the expectations that go with your status. If you are a child in a family you are expected to obey your parents, for example, but are not generally expected to help support the family.

More importantly, institutions are engendered by social groups, which at the same time define the roles and status of their members. In a manner, institutions govern equity; social groups inspect the functionality of institutions; status influences behavior; and roles define the assumption of this behavior.

In summary & as stated by Seneca, equity is the chief part of equality. And even though modernism has allowed humanity to reinvent the equality, we still depend on the creation of innovative movements of tuition impact.
