In this exercise, sometimes known as “the privilege walk,” participants stand in a line at the center of the room. Based on the provided statements, they take a step forward or backward according to whether a statement applies to them, visually demonstrating their different social statuses in society.  The guide also includes suggestions for a follow-up discussion.
