Talks on Mental Health - Vol 1 - Women* and mental health
TALKS ON MENTAL HEALTH by psychologist Felicia Lazaridou
Vol 3 - Women* and mental health - the intersectionality of social inequalities and ethnic disparities
In understanding women*’s mental health, the centrality of women*’s mental health is important because gender inequality interacts within a network of additional systems of power relations and privileges. Including those founded on ethnic group, class, age, education, sexuality and so on.
So while all women* have gender-based oppression in common, to a greater or lesser extent, in other ways the lives of women* at the intersection of various differences and identities are unique not least because how exactly intersectionality is a unique blend for each woman* and also because some women* have power over other women*.
This talk discusses the mental health implications of some of the different manifestations of gender inequality such as gender differences, roles, lifestyles and relationships in a matrix of gendered socio-political determinants of mental health.
