Despite growing calls for a more just society, social injustice is renewed, reinforced, and recreated every day in various ways across the Asian countries. Intersectionality is an approach that examines shared constitutive forms of social inequality and injustice (Hopkins, 2017). It offers unique engagement with the spaces that are subject to spatial resistance and exclusions. This paper takes a comparative qualitative approach examining the intersectionality of those social resistance and exclusions in the changing Indian and Chinese cultures.
