Report of the Working Group of Experts on People of African Descent on its nineteenth and twentieth sessions 2017, para. 58
Women and girls of African descent suffer from multiple forms of discrimination on account of their race, gender, class and other identities. The Working Group agrees with the Afro feminist theory of intersectionality that women of African descent face multiple forms of oppression which are interconnected and cannot be addressed separately from one another. Women of African descent face discrimination in all areas of life and their specific human rights concerns must be addressed.
