This year’s #PSPW2021 theme will focus on #intersectionality.
Intersectionality means considering that all people are part of many groups - gender, sexual orientation, race, class, (dis)ability… Being part of more than one group can sometimes create barriers for individuals.
Kick off this year's #GCWCC2021 with a special virtual launch event on Sept. 8.
