“…Perhaps, as in the case of Brazil, employing the very intersectionality of the conditions that has served to marginalize them historically would be one important step. This means mobilizing in the context of union membership and along the lines of gender, ethnicity, and class in order to pave the way for a heightened sense of collective agency and power (Bernardino-Costa 2014;Blofield 2009Blofield , 2012. To some degree this is already occurring, but there is still a long road to travel in ensuring that the larger unions with which each of the worker syndicates described here are associated recognize that the struggle must also include gender and ethnic concerns.…”

“…A brief review of the literature published within the last year revealed that an intersectional lens has been applied to a wide variety of social issues, such as migration and immigration, poverty, school bullying, labor relations, issues of privilege, oppression and equity, community organizing and transformation, intimate partner violence, and chronic disease prevention and intervention.
