Social injustice is a concept relating to the perceived unfairness of a society in its divisions of rewards and burdens. The concept is distinct from those of legal justice, which may or may not be considered moral in practice. Opposition to social injustice is increasingly a platform of emerging political parties.
Historically, writers have used literature to denounce social injustice in their societies. Some examples are Victor Hugo, Jane Austen, Oscar Wilde, Harriet Beecher Stowe, James A. Michener and Charles Dickens.
