In this session, presenters report on the empirical results of their diverse analyses of Canadian society using feminist intersectionality. Research topics include: the experiences of Jewish immigrants from the former Soviet Union; discrimination against immigrants, using the Ethnic Diversity Study; the influence of neo-liberalism and post-feminism on the female heterosexual subjectivity of young South Asian women; and the representation of youth crime in national newspapers. Presenters are also invited to reflect on the ways in which the approach they have retained is both intersectional and feminist, and how such an analysis is stronger than an analysis that is not intersectional or not feminist.
