Equality: A. In mathematics, equality is a relationship between two quantities or expressions, asserting that they have the same value. It is written using the equals sign (=). For example, 2+3=5 and x=2x/2 are both equalities. The concept is also used in many other fields, such as physics, engineering, and computer science. - B. Equality in politics is the idea that all people are equal in fundamental worth or moral status. This means that all people deserve to be treated with respect and dignity, regardless of their race, gender, religion, social class, or any other factor. See also Equal sign, Equations.

Equality/Difference/Diversity/Gender Policy/Fraser: Empirically, both basic positions of feminist justice theory - equality and difference - were taken up in the social state context and translated into social state programs.
For example, selection procedures (between men and women) follow the equality approach, specific promotion measures follow the diversity approach (diversity, theory of difference).
Problem: the two approaches (equality and diversity approach) are not linked together, as in Fraser's design, but stand next to each other contradictory.
