Oppression Monitor

Oppression can only survive through silence --Carmen de Monteflores

Your overlapping identities - including the oppression you receive is your lived intersectionality - reality. 
People who do not have your identity will have a hard time understanding what it feels like to live in your reality. 

Your whole identity can be understood as a soup - You Soup.

You can reference and share this spreadsheet. Glenn Robinson is the creator of this one, inspired by the Matrix of Oppression (Matrix of Domination) created by Patricia Hill Collins, Distinguished University Professor of Sociology at the University of Maryland, College Park, USA. Learn more here.
