Equality Does Not Mean Equal

Roslyn Muraskin, Long Island University - C.W. Post

ABSTRACT
This presentation will focus on the issues that have surrounded minorities and women since the beginnings of this country. To understand what justice is all about, one needs to understand history, the law, and the holdings of the various cases, and their impact on this group of individuals. Thus, this presentation will focus on problems of race, minorities, and women, and how to present a better understanding in all criminal justice undergraduate and graduate courses. An understanding of cultures and of peoples who come from various backgrounds will help us to understand what justice really means and why equality does not mean equal.
