Equalism

EqualismI am a feminist as I believe in equal rights for women and men. But I am also an equalist. Equalism is the the belief that “all human beings regardless of any socially defined identity category are of equal value and deserve equal access, treatment, rights, opportunity, and freedom in all realms of society” (Diehl and Dzubinski, 2016: 185).

Although my research primarily focuses on women, I believe that every human being, no matter the gender, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, class, ability, marital status, parental status, age, etc., is deserving of respect and equality.
