Does your work with young people touch on concepts of intersectionality and the reality of marginalized groups when it comes to sexual violence? If you want to integrate this approach into your mandate, this is the tool for you.
Targeted themes will guide you to a better understanding of the diversity of issues at stake within power dynamics and oppressed social groups. The document is split into two parts. The first contains a description of power dynamics, a definition of intersectionality and a table illustrating oppressed social groups and systems of power. The second part includes a description of the impact of systems of power on sexual violence, as well as the relative consequences and social groups affected.
This short 10-page document provides a basis for understanding the impact of power dynamics on oppressed groups and the effects of sexual violence. To learn more, video and text resources are available in the appendix.
The YWCA expertise
The YWCA Montreal offers a multitude of intervention and awareness tools. For several years now, youth workers have been using our content to prevent violence and reduce social and gender inequalities. The creation of this informative document was made possible with funding from the Secrétariat à la condition féminine du Québec.
