Description

Intersectionality offers a theory and a method for analyzing dimensions of power and agency in more varied ways. It is argued, that dimensions of oppression and opportunities also depend on the intersection of women’s status. Depending on her location, the Tibetan woman can be either disadvantaged or privileged, or both at the same time. Moreover, she can gain agency within power relations which to an external observer seem simply suppressive.
