The course of Feminist cognition of equality traverses from seeking the identical equality from a general point of view to searching equal power in more concrete terms and to pursuing equity out of differences based on fair and just principles. The author reviews this course and identifies issues that remain therein and also reflect on its theoretical values and practical significance. At the level of theoretical values, it is noted that the development of equality embodies the logical inevitability of history, whereby the earlier general pursuit of equality is not only concretized but also diversified so as to reveal dimensions of differences. This process opens up room for realism and idealism of achieving "equality".
