The Equal Rights Trust has published volume sixteen of its biannual Equal Rights Review, an interdisciplinary journal offering analysis, insight and ideas to those promoting equality. This issue has a special focus on intersectionality. It asks how relevant - if at all - intersectionality is for understanding and fighting discrimination.
We particularly recommend the interview with experts, Professor Kimberlé Crenshaw (who coined the term intersectionality in the late 1980s) and CEDAW member, Patricia Schulz. We are also delighted that Rohingya activist, Wai Wai Nu participated in volume 16, giving her testimony on the intersection of discrimination she experienced as both a woman and a Rohingya living in Myanmar.
