Asia is the largest continent, with the majority of the (CDWD) population in the world.The concept of equality does define its concepts of non-discrimination and safeguards through legal procedures and standards. Marginalized communities could achieve equality by abolishing discrimination in all forms.

Similar concepts exist, such as caste around the world called communities discriminated on work and descent (CDWD).
