Respect diversity facts for kids

Kids Encyclopedia Facts

To respect diversity and the "biodiversity" of non-human life, is basic to some 20th-century studies.

In various forms it is promoted by many political movements, most notably feminism, gay rights, green politics, animal rights and the anti-globalization movement. However it means somewhat different things in each of these.

To some, diversity means bio-diversity and the existence of several distinct races and cultures. To others, diversity means the mixing of races and cultures into one, as per the melting pot idea.

Green politics and diversity

The Green Party of the United States discusses a respect for diversity as follows:

We believe it is important to value cultural, ethnic, racial, sexual, religious and spiritual diversity, and to promote the development of respectful relationships across these lines.
We believe that the many diverse elements of society should be reflected in our organizations and decision-making bodies, and we support the leadership of people who have been traditionally closed out of leadership roles. We acknowledge and encourage respect for other life forms than our own and the preservation of biodiversity.
