This paper will analyse the extent and nature of disadvantage across the major social differentiations within UK society, which have been or are about to be incorporated into equal opportunities and diversity legislation and a new single Commission for Equality and Human Rights: gender, race, disability, sexual orientation, religious belief and age. It will assess the efficacy and potential of the intersectional approach first established in the UK in Northern Ireland. Utilising inspiration from both identity theory and theories of racism, sexism and class, intersectionality offers a potential opening for continuing equality policy where gender does not disappear but remains in a prominent place as one of the most important axes of domination.
