The SHARE: Education team believes in communities where everyone is empowered to express themselves and have caring relationships.
Our mission is to empower the Stanford community to develop positive sexuality and end sexual and relationship violence, stalking, gender discrimination, and sexual harassment through collaborative Healing, Education, Activism, Response, and Transformation (HEART).
Intersectionality or Intersectional Theory is a term that was first coined by scholar and civil rights advocate Kimberlé Crenshaw. This theory seeks to examine how various social and biological categorizations like gender, race, class, ability, sexual orientation religion, etc. interact on multiple levels in relation to systems of oppression and discrimination.
The SHARE: Education team uses the theory of intersectionality as a framework to guide our prevention, education, and outreach programming. The use of an intersectional framework is paramount so that we can better serve the entirety of the Stanford community.
