The Reality of Intersectional Factors in Gender Inequality
In 2017, Islamic Relief Worldwide piloted protective and inclusive programming in six countries. For the pilots, the humanitarian organization created several tools, including an intersectionality framework to help understand gender identities, their social positions and immediate and strategic impacts.
To identify the women at risk of exclusion, Islamic Relief started using a model based on a gender analysis of power and influence.
The model analyzes the underlying power structures that define public discourse; as everybody carries multiple identities, there is a tendency not to immediately spot factors that render women most liable to discrimination.
