Power and Privilege

Sylvia Duckworth Wheel of Power and Privilege

Sylvia Duckworth’s illustration of Wheel of Power and Privilege enables us to visualise the impact of power on how we feel and experience life. It is easy to see how low power in several areas can lead to disadvantage, discrimination and marginalisation.

Think about your own life in terms of the categories on the wheel and then reflect on how it might feel to place yourself in other categories.

Are there any other categories of power in your life?

This wheel shows the interconnectedness of power and privilege:

  • Having privilege gives you power.
  • Having power gives your privilege.
