1. You looked at four specific types of equality in the course materials. Choose two and describe them in the space below. [2.1]

Natural equality relates to a person’s ability to choose, i.e. beliefs, values, interests and lifestyle. This should be free from influence from others (unless their lifestyles are something that is illegal such as cannibalism) or being treated differently because of the choices they make.

Equality before the law means that everyone should be treated equally and fairly. I.e. laws must apply to everyone, not just a group of people, this is why there are issues with the enforcement of stop and search by police, as more black people are stopped than white people, which suggests that black people are discriminated against and thought more likely to warrant the stop and search principle to be applied to them.

2. Think about a community. Describe the benefits of equality and diversity within that community. [2.2]
