Social Inequalities represent, globally, most developed obstacles to the practicing the Human rights and equality. Amnesty International Reports, WUNRN [1] reports, Global risks reports show that there are complex forms of human debris, in the contemporary. Social inequalities represent unequal opportunities inside the society, based on the race, gender, and class. Women Human rights [2] activists, jointly with the ecological rights activists, and the activists for the rights of the minorities, (colored, migrants, and war veterans, 1970-ties had started campaign, globally, against the oppression and the discrimination. Giddens in Sociology, emphasizes the deconstruction of gender based inequalities that permeate private and public sphere, equally. Haraway in Manifesto for Cyborg [3], offers the understanding of binary opposites, necessary for the understanding of the social inequalities, in comparison to postmodern futuristic vision of egalitarian society. World Health Organization, defines the socioeconomic inequalities as the most complex and problematic, for the future: “Socioeconomic inequalities, related to income, employment, education, as well as demographic differences, such as age or gender, are associated with unequal exposure to environmental risk factors. They contribute to the health inequities and most often put disadvantaged groups at significantly higher risk for the environmental health effects” [4]. Even though, there is a pleyad of multi perspective, multidisciplinary , and practical knowledge that is learned inside the academia, there is not enough implementation, and use of the potentials for fighting the discrimination, that is result of the social inequalities. The main hypothesis of this investigation is that the social inequalities are rising every day, and that the better joint strategy of different science networks, especially sociologists, NGO-s, Women’s groups for help, students, can help in their diminishment. Empirical part of this investigation includes the analyses of the opinion of students on how to diminish the social inequality.
