Intersectionality

No matter the intersections of our privilege(s) and oppression(s), we ALL have a role in combating oppression and unequal power dynamics.

Intersectionality  is a sociological theory that promotes the understanding that individuals have multiple identity factors and are "shaped by the interactions and intersections of these different social [identity factors] (e.g., race, ethnicity, Indigeneity, gender, class, sexuality, geography, age, (dis)ability, migration status, religion, etc.)" [from Intersectionality 101].
