We must admit that capital has been very successful in hiding our work. It has created a true masterpiece at the expense of women. By denying housework a wage and transforming it into an act of love, capital has killed many birds with one stone. First of all, it has got a hell of a lot of work for free, and it has made sure that women, far from struggling against it, would seek that work as the best thing in life. At the same time it has disciplined the male worker also, by making his woman dependent on his work and his wage, and trapped him in this discipline by giving him a servant after he himself has done so much serving at the factory, at the office.Silvia Federici - ‘Wages Against Housework’.

of course, there’s thing we say about each of these when we introduce then. but here’s the short version!
systems of oppression exist.
we have all experienced being both targets and agents of oppression. (we have experienced both being harmed by them and benefiting from them.)
it is not useful to argue about a hierarchy of oppressions.
systems of oppression are interconnected and reliant upon each other.
confronting and dismantling systemic oppression will benefit everyone.
placing blame helps no one, but taking responsibility (for our actions and the actions of our ancestors) helps us all.
confronting systemic oppression is painful, and joyful, and is a life work.
