CRIAW-ICREF is excited to announce the release of the latest tool from our “Building Capacity for Intersectional Advocacy on Women’s Issues” project! This new animation gives a visual introduction to the concept of feminist intersectionality. An important resource for organizations, activists, educators, and students alike, this animation will help you to better understand intersectional inequality, and then take smarter action to address it.
Feminist intersectionality situates women’s experiences of inequality in a broad web of power relations, rooted in systems of power such as racism, classism, ableism, and heterosexism. Intersectionality provides a framework to analyze the profound inequalities embedded in our systems and structures, which many women face in multiple and intersecting forms at the same time.
CRIAW-ICREF’s tools on feminist intersectionality are framed by the existing work of racialized women and the many discussions held with women’s organizations across the country during CRIAW-ICREF’s Building Capacity project. To learn more about the history behind the concept of intersectionality and what it means in theory and in practice, please read CRIAW-ICREF’s Feminist Intersectionality Primer.
