is a concept relating to the perceived unfairness or injustice
of a society
in its divisions of rewards and burdens. The concept is distinct from those of justice in law
, which may or may not be considered moral in practice. Opposition to social injustice is increasingly a platform of emerging political parties
. Social Injustice arises when equals are treated unequally and unequals are treated equally.(Aristotle's principle of injustice
Historically, Authors have used literature to denounce or to satirize perceived social injustices in their societies. Some examples are Jane Austen, Charles Dickens, Dario Fo, Minfong Ho, Victor Hugo, James A. Michener, Harold Pinter, Upton Sinclair, Harriet Beecher Stowe, and Oscar Wilde and George Orwell.
