Gender, race, class and ethnicity are categories of difference usually treated by writers as separate concerns even though real life can't easily be packaged into compartments. Can we break through the barriers of categorisation to discuss multiple and simultaneous oppression?

Living in the Margins boldly pushes back boundaries to analyse the commonalities as well as the differences in the lives of Australians, particularly Aboriginal women and women from non-English-speaking backgrounds.

The contested nature of identity is a recurring theme in this book which throws open for examination the concepts of culture and community, and the use of race and ethnicity as political resources.
