The concept of recognition introduced by Taylor (1994) highlights the importance of being recognised by others in the way we recognise ourselves and how if we are not recognised for who we think we are, or misrecognised through a process of othering, this can lead to a negative sense of self particularly if: “the people or society mirror back to them a confining or demeaning or contemptible picture of themselves,” (Taylor, 1994:27).
