My research interest is to acquire a complete and integrated conceptual framework on Intersectional analysis in order to create a theoretical model that takes into account gender, ethnicity, interculturality and sexuality of indigenous women, among others identities. This could be used in practice during the design and implementation of public policies and development projects oriented to empower indigenous women and to support their processes toward autonomy and equality within contexts of cultural diversity. Even though my starting point will be the indigenous women of Peru, I understand that the crosscutting issues involved in this research could be also applied to the realities that face indigenous women in many parts of the world. Therefore, the findings of my research could also be useful in different contexts.
