Eva Schömer is currently writing an article on intersectionality in labour law for the Delegation of Gender Equality (2013).
Schömer is specialized in issues concerning labour law and gender equality in working life from an intersectional perspective, where she uses intersectionality as a tool to analyse law and “all kinds” of equality in working life.
From an intersectional perspective it is relevant to ask questions concerning “the” established categories and power in law when it comes to inequality and differences in the society and working life. The American lawyer Marie Matsuda shows how it is possible to visualize power and illuminate subordination in society through the quotation ‘”When I see something that looks racist, I ask “where is the patriarchy in this?” When I see something that looks sexist, I ask, “Where is the heterosexism in this?” When I see something that looks homophobic, I ask, “Where are the class interests in this?””
