Equality, as I understand it, is based on the concept of rights. If rights are something granted by the state, they're outside of the purview of the kind of society I'd find bearable to live in. The inventory of concepts that come out of the Enlightenment, including equality, rights, republicanism, etc. may have been an improvement upon what preceded them, but I see them as decreasingly relevant to the project of liberation.
