Information to help learn the meaning of terms and concepts related to different forms of oppression.
And that's why we created this guide.
The resources it points to can help people learn the meanings of words and concepts used when people talk or write about different types of oppression. Some of these words may be familiar to many people, others less so. We hope there is something to help everyone learn new information.
This guide will be reviewed regularly with more categories to come. Please check back for updates and additions.
