What does it mean to be a member of an oppressed or subordinate group?
Further, oppressed individuals are those who are members of the subordinate culture, rather than the dominate culture. The dominate culture in the U.S. is made up of Caucasian, heterosexual people (male and female). [ Although women can be oppressed, white women are less likely to be oppressed than, say, a black woman.
Examples of subordinate culture, or oppressed groups are: people of color,
native americans, the disabled, women, lesbians and gays, transgendered individuals, those born into poverty, and immigrants.
