Where some people in society have an advantage over others. This advantage is often based on factors that people have no control over, such as their race, class or gender. Privileged people experience no, or very little, discrimination and oppression. Without discrimination holding them back, privileged people often have opportunities others don’t. Often privileged people are not aware of their privilege. The most privileged people are white, upper/middle class, non-disabled, heterosexual, cis (identify as the same gender that they were assigned at birth), middle-aged men – sometimes referred to as ‘default man’.
