|—||James C. Scott, Domination and the Arts of Resistance|
“Society recognizes the ways people are different and assigns group membership based on these differences; at the same time, society also ranks the differences and institutionalizes them into the fabric of society… This implies that meanings associated with difference exist beyond the intentions of individual people. These rankings of groups and their members create a hierarchy in which some ways of being, like being abled or heterosexual, are valued more than others, like being disabled or gay or lesbian.”
- Susan Shaw and Janet Lee, Women’s Voices, Feminist Visions 4th Ed.

Anyway, here is The Intersecting Axes of Privilege, Domination, and Opression, lifted from my old Women’s Studies textbook with full attribution. I could have just scanned it in from the textbook, but it appears that I spilled chocolate syrup on it. Plus I plan to simplify it momentarily for use with a younger audience. Very helpful in discussions of privilege! Enjoy!
