Does anyone know of a privilege checker online?

Asked by gemiwing (14703points) July 2nd, 2010

I’m looking for a website/program/checklist that helps me evaluate my privilege and my awareness of it.

Specifically white/female/ableist.

So far I’ve found basic checklists and writings but nothing interactive that could give me a score of sorts, at the end.

Here’s an article reviewing various methods for measuring social class. Perhaps it will lead you to some sort of standardized test that can give you a score compared to others.

What a great question – I don’t know about exactly what you’re looking for but I have some websites bookmarked on computer at home that I can look into. Please remind me if I don’t get back to you tonight.

This, in the meantime, is a classic document to read.

@Simone_De_Beauvoir Yes, it is. I have this saved and I’m always glad to get more exposure for it!

This is one of my favorite websites. As is this.
