Oppression is experienced by anyone who does not fit the profile of the dominant group in Western societies-people of colour or with disabilities; women; gay, lesbian, and bisexual persons; the young and the old; the poor. Privilege is the inverse to oppression, given to us by society if wepossess those characteristics that society values, such as being male, white, heterosexual, affluent, and non-disabled. In the second edition of Challenging Oppression and Confronting Privilege, Bob Mullaly examines in detail the many forms that oppression can take, at the personal, cultural, andstructural (or institutional) levels and explores their relationship to privilege in society. Using this framework, he outlines the anti-oppressive approaches and practices that social work must adopt if it is really to assist those on whom an inferior variety of citizenship has been imposed. Healso discusses what privilege has to do with social workers and presents a number of activities that confront and challenge privilege to make a difference with their practice.
Bob Mullaly is Senior Scholar in the Faculty of Social Work at the University of Manitoba.
