Intersectionality is a tool for analyzing how different forms of oppression (e.g. ageism, racism, sexism, ableism, heterosexism, classism) interact and intersect to influence lived experiences. It has come to be recognized as an influential approach for making sense of how inequalities manifest for individuals and groups.

As Social Workers, it is important to remind ourselves that whether our clients have mental health issues, are older people, or live with disabilities, we all inhabit multiple social identities including age, gender, class, race, disability and sexuality.
