    Power, People & Planet PodcastIntersectionality: The Missing Link For Justice

    Always a pleasure to listen to Kumi Naidoo, former Director of Amnesty, Greenpeace and CIVICUS and in this episode now with Naomi Klein

    “In this episode, we reflect on the critical importance of the power of intersectional approaches between different movements so that they might win bigger battles faster.

    Intersectionality refers to the interconnected nature of social categories such as race, class, and gender as they apply to a given individual or group, creating overlapping and interdependent systems of discrimination or disadvantage. Intersectionality is a lens that allows us to view the hidden and invisible connections in our society. While many in civil society and different movements recognize this theoretically, there’s still far too high a propensity towards siloed activism.”
