Within the National SEED Project , a peer-led professional development program of the Wellesley Centers for Women, there is a phrase, Stories and Systems, which refers to the ways in which an individual's story might fit into systems of oppression and dominance. In this video, Emmy Howe, M. Ed., explains that each person has spaces in which they are dominant and privileged, and each person has spaces in which they are oppressed. Once one has become conscious of how their story fits into a system, they can change a small piece of an oppressive structure.
