Multicultural societies are societies consisting of two or more groups which regard themselves, and be recognized by others as culturally different from each other.

Multiculturalism accepts and encourages different group identities, but make conditions unfavorable for the development of a community that unites across cultures. Multiculturalism can also give the individual weak legal protection against abuse from the group.

For example, giving a religious group's right to make and enforce its own laws, to the detriment of individual rights. If such laws make it more difficult to separate from her spouse, for example, there will be a restriction of someone's rights compared to what they would have in the absence of this group right.
