Gender day 4 – Intersectionality

Here we are on the fourth day of this week dedicated to gender. Today we invite you to better understand intersectionality and we propose for you videos, reports and more information on intersectionality.
What is intersectionality?

 
Intersectionality refers to the situation of people who are simultaneously subjected to several forms of domination or discrimination in a society. Social differentiations such as gender, race, class, sexual orientation or disability are sources of oppression that can interact and overlap to reinforce each other. Taking into account intersectionality therefore provides a better understanding of the stigma and discriminations that a person may experience.
