Anti-oppression is the lens through which one understands how race, gender, sexual orientation, and identity, ability, age, class, occupation, and social service usage, can result in systemic inequalities for particular groups. Anti-oppressive practice (AOP) refers to engaging in work that critically examines how social structures and social institutions work to create and perpetuate the oppression and marginalization of those who have been identified as not belonging to the dominant group.
