Intersectional Gender Studies

full name / name of organization: 
Gender Forum

One of the most important tenets of third wave feminism is the acknowledgement of the fact that gender and gender relations do not exist in a vacuum, but that they are, in fact, only a part of an intricate web of oppression and privileging based on a myriad of factors. Other important factors influencing the level of oppression someone faces are, for example, race, class, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion or disability.

In this issue of Gender Forum, we would like to focus specifically on the ways in which gender issues are impacted by and connected to other axes of oppression.

Please submit abstracts or full articles (not exceeding 8,000 words) by April 30th.
