Every modern democratic society strives to achieve equality across every measurable ethnic, gender, or socio-economic demographic.
Equality breaks down when different interested parties misunderstand what societal equality actually means. Issues arise related to a misunderstanding as to the extent that equality can be regulated.
Equality can be approached from either a legal or experiential standpoint.
Equality from an experiential standpoint looks at the outcome individuals experience within society. This perspective takes that experience and attempts to change the legal and regulatory climate to produce an environment where any two individuals will see the same outcome from a set activity.
