What are my rights if I was fired because I broke a company policy but subordinates also broke policy and were only given warnings and write-ups?

I am a female manager; 2 male managers who also broke policy were my management team. Instead of them getting fired, they went through the write-up process that consisted of 3 strikes even though the things that they did were on their no nonsense policy list and cost the company money whereas my mistake was a minor glitch that could be fixed and not cost anyone anything. I don’t want my job back; I was literally fired yesterday and 8 hours later obtained a better job but I feel I should be compensated for the double standard that they put me through.
