Equity and Equality


Written By Anum Saba

Equity and equality are two different terms we often use in our daily conversation. Though many people misinterpret their meaning and consider the same, they are not interchangeable. Equality means to share the same resources to everyone in an exact manner; however, the term, equity, is described as the distribution of resources based upon the needs of the receiver. For example, there are two persons, one is short, and the other is tall. They need to look over the fence; however, they are also given with boxes to clearly look over the fence, one to each. This distribution of boxes is based on equality, but the tall person doesn’t need the box, and if he gives his box to smaller one who clearly needs one more box to look over the fence it becomes equity.

However, this equity is required in every walk of life to maintain a balance between all the community members in health, schools, politics, and in every area of life where it can be possible. Distribution of resources must be based upon the needs of that society. It doesn’t mean that you distribute the same resources to those who already have it, but it must be based upon people’s needs and requirements.

In a nutshell, equality is the circulation of assets on an equal basis, whereas, equity is the supply based on needs to generate high results in society. To achieve fairness and the same standards of living, equity must be promoted in the community.
