Differentiating gender equity from gender equality is important in developing future psychologists and psychometricians who are gender empathic and not radically gender sensitive. Certain groups had been battling for gender equality which is usually an outcry against male dominance disregarding that the equality they strive for can be done in the context of freedom from bias or favoritism.
