The focus of this essay is on the mechanisms of inclusion and exclusion in different feminism rooms. Seven activists taking part in several forms of feminism projects, organisations, networks and demonstrations are interviewed and the essay analyzes whether the participants themselves feel included or excluded in feminism rooms. If they have motives to include or exclude different groups of people are something that is also looked into. Intersectionality and phenomenology are used as an analytical and methodological approach throughout this essay. The results have shown that the participants feel included and excluded due to different intersections of power. An intersectional awareness help them to see how the mechanisms of inclusion and exclusion works. The participants are also aware of the difficult task to create rooms free from all kinds of hierarchies. A strategy for some of the participants is thus to exclude some people in order to include others; often more underprivilegied groups of people. The intersections of power are complex though and cross into each other. As an outcome of this complexity it can sometimes be questioned how lines between inclusion and exlusion are drawn as people tend to fall in between categories.
