I was listening to the latest episode of my favourite gardening podcast Roots and All, and it was an interview with Dr Anne Karpf about her book How Women Can Save The Planet. She discussed gender inequality and why the Nature and Climate Emergency is also a gender issue. Absolutely fascinating, and brought together so many ideas.
I wrote a talk called The Intersectional Garden, because in my mind a forest garden is at the intersection.
I had borrowed the phrase from Deepti Gurdusani, who describes herself as an intersectional feminist. But then I actually looked up what intersectionality actually means, and I wish I’d used a different term, it was proper misappropriation on my part!
And I heard the podcast on the same day that the Baroness Casey Review about misogyny, racism and homophobia in the Met Police was released. And apparently she widened the review to adopt an intersectional approach.
