Equity is not Sameness
All along I have had a misconception of what equity actually is all about. I always regarded equity as sameness and ensuring that all people received equal share of whatever things are to be shared in different scenarios. I was all wrong to find that equity is a collection of legal principles for instance in jurisdictions which, follow the common law of England which supplement very strict rules governed by the law and once applied may operate in a harsh manner to attain what is commonly regarded as natural justice. It is not really exercising equal share of such things like resources. It goes beyond that. For instance, there could be an equal share of responsibilities in a certain organization but that does not mean that equity has been exercised. This is often confusing. This change of opinion was prompted by situations, which there were men and women in a particular organization required to dispense certain duties to the success of the organization. This involved working in varied positions in which some required direct use of physical energy whereas others required good managerial skills and knowledge. Men would perform well in duties which, required use of physical effort, which women could hardly suffice the needs owing to the nature of their being. Although equality would demand a balanced share of the responsibilities, equity would on the contrary enforce natural justice by executing fairness which, is brought about by the course of nature. This completely changed my thinking and the way I interacted with others. I therefore do not expect to receive the same treatment with a younger person who needs much attention than I do when it comes to dealing with things much beyond our power and ability. In addition, I do not expect to be treated the same way with a female of my age if I were a man when matters of security were placed on the table. This is what equity really is all about.
