What is intersectionality and how is it addressed in this toolkit?

Intersectionality is a valuable framework that makes it possible to analyse and understand the interconnected nature of various forms of inequality, such as gender, race, class, sexual orientation, and personal characteristics. Throughout the various components of the toolkit, intersectionality is addressed with practical tips and advice on how to incorporate intersectional approaches, ensuring inclusiveness and sensitivity in addressing gender-based violence.
