Equity vs Equality


Equity is the quality of being fair and impartial.
In this illustration the author depicts a picture of all three persons being content, happy, and enjoying the game, all three can see over the fence and are engaged in the game.

Equality is the state of being equal, especially in status, rights, and opportunities. In the illustration all three persons are of equal opportunity, all given a box to stand on and watch the game. As we can see, all three are not very engaged. Even though all are given equal it seems that it might not be the most fair.

I think that the opinion of Equity and Equality differs because I feel that in different situations the value of opinions differ. Some people’s opportunities may differ purely because everyone’s situations are not the same.
