Has Social Justice Won?

These days, it can seem like social justice is everywhere—from the news cycle to popular culture. But has it actually won? That’s a complex question with no simple answer. Many elements must be considered when looking at whether or not social justice warriors have achieved their goals. Let’s take a deeper look at this topic. What Are Social Justice Warriors?  Before we can answer the question of whether or not social justice warriors have been successful, it’s important to understand who they are and what they stand for. Social justice warriors (or SJWs) are people who strive to create a more equitable society by advocating for marginalized groups such as people of colour, LGBTQ+ individuals, women, people with disabilities, and other oppressed populations. They often use online platforms such as Twitter and Tumblr to spread awareness about injustices and call out those in positions of power who perpetuate inequity.  Have Social Justice Warriors Been Successful?  In some ways, yes—social justice warriors have achieved some victories in recent years. For example, there has been increased visibility for marginalized groups in popular culture and media representation has improved significantly since the early 2000s. Additionally, numerous laws have been passed that protect the rights of these communities and ensure that they have access to resources such as healthcare and education.    However, there is still much work to be done before true equality can be reached. Many systems still favour certain groups over others; for example, white men still hold most positions of power in business and government despite efforts from SJWs to diversify these roles. Furthermore, much of the progress made towards social justice has only been temporary; when faced with pushback from opponents of progressive causes (such as the current administration’s attempts to roll back civil rights legislation), even hard-won victories may be lost if activists do not remain vigilant and vocal about their causes.  Social Justice Warriors have made significant strides towards achieving greater equity within our society but there is still work to be done before true equality can be reached. Systemic injustice persists despite efforts from activists worldwide who strive each day to make our world a better place for all humanity regardless of gender identity, race/ethnicity or sexual orientation/preference. The fight for social justice will continue until our society embraces the idea that everyone deserves equal respect regardless of their background – only then will we truly say social justice has won!
