Quote of the Day

Sexism, racism, classism, ableism, colonialism, imperialism – rely on each other in complex ways. The “interlocking” effect means that the systems of oppression come into existence in and through each other so that class exploitation could not be accomplished without gender and racial hierarchies, imperialism could not function without class exploitation, sexism and so on. Because the systems rely on each other in these complex ways, it is ultimately futile to attempt to disrupt one system without simultaneously disrupting others.
