15:00 Samtvinnuð fjöldasamstaða
Mass solidarity has been the basis of the progress we have achieved through equality in Iceland. But have everyone always found themselves part of the crowd? Cohabitation or intersectionality are increasingly important concepts in feminism, the idea that in the struggle for equality, it is fundamental to look at the different factors that lead to injustice. In order to achieve gender equality, it is necessary to consider the integration of gender equality with inequality based on e.g. disability, sexual awareness, class status, race, etc.
