Social justice is a subcategory under justice and can be described as a utilitarian process by which a fair society is one that works towards increasing the general well-being of all citizens, regardless of race, sex, ethnicity, age, sexual preference, or socioeconomic status. Social justice is a principle which fuses together the three basic fundamental parts of a functional society: societal, ethical, and moral ideals, all of which without, social justice would cease to be a topic of discussion.
