Intersectionality in Action Panel discussion takes place on Saturay 29th of September as part of #WOWPERTH
“I am not free while any woman is unfree, even when her shackles are very different from my own.” Audre Lorde Many women are held back not just by their gender. As a predominantly white, able bodied society how do we make sure our own personal fight and Scotland’s fight for gender equality is truly intersectional? Our panel including Director of Equate Scotland and founder of Women 50/50 Talat Yaqoob, Activist Mina Baird and local Outreach Officer Samaira Ali will discuss how they are putting intersectionality into practice as they place issues like race, class, sexuality and disability front and centre in their fight against sexism.
