Today, the eighth day of the 16 Days of Activism against gender-based violence, we introduce intersectionality. Intersectionality considers how people experience multiple and intersecting forms of discrimination and disadvantage. Intersectionality is a way of seeing the dynamics of power and inequality in our society. Many of the ways that we are socially labelled are connected to aspects of our identity such as race, ethnicity, indigeneity, class, gender, ability, sexuality, geography, age, life stage, migration status or religion. An intersectional approach helps us to focus on the intersecting and interlinking forms of discrimination and oppression. An intersectional approach is not about arguing for gender OR ‘diversity’. Thinking and acting intersectionally is about including more information. More information about how gender is being expressed and experienced, in our local contexts, by telling a detailed and sometime complex story about discrimination and inequality.
