In Other Words (IOW) dictionary is a free online intercultural and intersectional resource that problematizes different forms of diversity and Otherness as (re)produced by mainstream narratives - gender, class, sexual orientation, ethnic origins, age, body features and shapes, abilities – and reverses such narratives through creative examples taken from literature, poetry, the arts, videos, movies, street art, music, songs, pop culture.
