othersociologyMy new video! The organisers of the Women's March in Washington as well as the local march in Sydney had a focus on intersectionality amongst speakers. Intersectionality describes how gender inequality is impacted by racism and other issues like homophobia, disability discrimination and class.
Despite this focus on intersectionality some of the marches didn't live up to this spirit, and the global conversations about minority women being excluded in the marches show resistance amongst vocal White, able-bodied, cisgender women (that is, women who are not transgender). This video briefly covers some of these issues and shows why intersectionality is vital in the fight for all women's rights.
