INTERSECTIONALITY is the way forward

On March 8, we mark International Women’s Day, created to celebrate our social, economic, cultural and political achievements. To create a rallying call for awareness and the continued push towards gender equality.
As many South Asian women who have been working for a long time will testify, things have gotten a lot easier. We celebrate Diwali nationally with non-Hindu and non-South Asian colleagues and enjoy new motherhood with maternity and paternity leave. But the world is not yet where it could be. Intersectionality can help with that.

In spite of the best efforts of the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) sector, we still find that women are, especially after the pandemic, struggling to remain at work and care for themselves, families and mental health at the same time. 

We propose a way to look at things that’s growing less and less radical: Intersectional Feminism, a term coined by Kimberlé Crenshaw in 1989.
