The importance of women's empowerment cannot be understated - in a society where girls and women are compelled to conform to oppressive gender roles, are denied countless opportunities for personal and professional development, and are vulnerable to different forms of discrimination, exploitation, and violence, it is vital that we do all we can to change hearts and minds towards the cause of women's empowerment. The best way to do that is through childhood and youth interventions - this demographic represents the future of society, and educating them about women's issues and rights is the first step in changing our world for the better.
Founded in 2022, the Intersections Initiative seeks to develop and distribute educational resources to help students gain exposure to intersectional feminism, helping them understand the importance of women's issues and rights advocacy across different fields. As part of this project, we have developed and distributed original resources such as a series of pamphlets on intersectional feminism, and a curated collection of intersectional cultural works.
