As SDG 5 highlights, there cannot be sustainable development without gender equality and the empowerment of all women and girls across the globe. However, the discourse on gender equality is facing the risk of becoming too simplistic, ignoring the complex and multi-faceted nature of identity. Especially in countries like Denmark, which is becoming more international and multicultural by the day, it is necessary as well as relevant to take into account the role of intersectionality in the broader topic of equality among genders. An intersectional approach shows the way that people’s social identities can overlap, creating compounding experiences of discrimination. Many women identify themselves as feminists, however, their experiences as women in society are very different based on their background. All inequality is not created equal. This workshop will provide your students with an understanding of how different women fight for equality and that there are different experiences women go through based on their identity.
