New, from the Women’s Health Research Network, a primer for women’s health researchers on how to apply an intersectional framework in their work.

 “For those working in the areas of gender and women’s health, intersectionality can be used for studying, understanding, and responding to the ways in which sex and gender intersect with other variables and how these intersections contribute to unique experiences of health. This perspective reveals that, while sex and gender are important considerations, one should never assume that they are the most important categories for conducting health research or for developing, implementing, or evaluating policy. In short, an intersectional framework can be thought of as the next step in the evolution of women’s health research and policy.”
