Social Equity and Social Change

Social Equity and Social Change

Human beings have developed intimate same- sex bonds for a long time and in all this time, the western legal and social norms have condemned gay marriages. However, attitude towards gay marriage began to change in the late 20th century with the Stonewall riots of 1969 and this marked the conventional turning point for the birth of modern gay rights movement. Social equity, according to Shafritz, Russell and Borick (2013), is application of the concerns of justice and fairness to social policy. A social change such as gay marriages that has occurred in the United States must be addressed through social equity. Though same- sex marriage has not been socially accepted in the advanced societies such as the United States, it has been addressed in various states with fairness by giving same- sex partners equal rights as the other people in the society (Johnson, 2013). However, this relationship between social equity and gay marriages in the United States has received some criticisms from across the world especially based on religious teachings and social norms and traditions.

Social equity is essential when considering social change dynamics because it provides justice and fairness to all social changes.
