California State University Northridge Intersectional Analysis of Covid 19 Paper
Prompt: Covid-19 has not only upended everyone’s lives, but it has also revealed the inequalities that feminist theorists have always written about. In this essay, use one of the essays, “A Primer on Intersectionality” (attached at the bottom) and the “United Nations Policy Brief: The Impact of Covid-19 on Women” ( https://www.unwomen.org/-/media/headquarters/attac… ) from class, and undertake an intersectional reflection of Covid-19 starting from your lives. In other words, how would theorize what you are seeing/experiencing about Covid-19 in terms of class, race, gender, sexuality, citizenship, religion etc.? What is happening in your homes, communities, cities, jobs (or lack thereof)? What is the lockdown doing to gender dynamics around you? How do other intersections show up? Again, this is you analyzing the social, economic and political ramifications of this disease starting from YOUR lives. Let your own data be the launching pad to thinking about the world, as opposed to looking for a reflection of you in the world of ideas.
