27 Dec 06 INTERSECTIONALITY: A TOOL FOR GENDER JUSTICE?
Tuesday, 11th January, 2022 at 6:30 p.m. CET
We are pleased to invite you to the fifth event of our twinning program “Spanish-speaking cultural bridge”.
This round table – proposed and organized by the Association of University Women of Marbella – aims to know the opinion of three specialists on the subject of intersectionality and understand both the concepts and their appropriate use. We will also have the opportunity to discuss its implementation and the challenges and difficulties that arise when using it as a basis for political articulation for women’s rights.
We will start from the enunciation of Kimberlé Crenshaw about intersectionality as the expression of a complex system of oppressive structures that occur simultaneously, giving rise to multiple discriminations, as well as a series of privileges. Intersectionality as a perspective allows us to recognize this chain of oppressions / privileges of people located within these structures of oppression. Is intersectionality a critical methodology, a tool to get closer to social justice?
