GBA+ Awareness Week 2017 - Quiz Ansawer 4

4. Name three intersecting identity factors that GBA+ examines.

Answer: We all have multiple identity factors that intersect to make us who we are. This is called intersectionality. The “plus” highlights the fact that GBA has always gone beyond sex and gender. It examines how sex and gender intersect with other identities such as: race, ethnicity, religion, age or mental or physical disability. The identity factors noted are not an exhaustive list but represent only those listed explicitly in the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. There are numerous other identity factors that can and should be considered.
