How do we make sure feminism works for all women? Not only is gender a source of struggle for women, so too are race and class. Arianne Shahvisi will introduce the idea of intersectionality, which simply means that feminists should consider the many different, interlinked ways in which people are affected by the way our society operates. This teaches us that when we campaign for justice in society, we should always ensure that the most vulnerable groups are our first priority.
Arianne is a Kurdish-British writer, academic, and activist, based in Brighton. She is a Lecturer in Ethics at the Brighton & Sussex Medical School, where her research and teaching focusses on gender, race, and migration, on which she also writes occasional online commentary.
