RECOGNITION OF INTERSECTIONALITY

People who are marginalized in all spheres of life are also more likely to be sexually violated. It is imperative to note that people who are subjugated to harassment for the following aspects of one’s identity are more likely to be targeted for sexual violence as well: race, color, national origin, gender identity, gender presentation, sexual orientation, age, body size, disability, appearance, religion, citizenship, pregnancy, among other aspects.
