Although there is a growing literature on the experiences and service needs of ethnically and culturally diverse individuals, families and communities, the interaction of gender with other diversities has not been widely explored. This paper examines data collected from six affinity-based focus groups of women: refugees, older women, African American women, lesbians, girls, and women with disabilities to explore the interaction of gender with other diversities. All of the groups reported an interaction between gender and their affinity group, and the ways in which that interaction contributed to their subordinate position in society and within their population group was described. Implications for practice are discussed.
