Intersectionality is a robust framework for examining power relations, discrimination, privilege, and other root causes of inequality. It emphasizes the layered impacts of historical, material, and social locations, such as gender, class, race, caste, ethnicity, sexuality, disability, migration status and geography, and allows us to focus on the subjective lived experiences of poor migrant women workers.
Below is a reflective tool for stakeholders working with migrant women workers, to self-assess and examine their focus on gender equity and intersectionality, in programs and interventions deployed on ground.
Please note that the points listed below have been co-created during our conversation with on-ground practitioners. This list is indicative, and not exhaustive. Intersectionality is continuously evolving and plays out differently across contexts.
