Intersectionality is an analytical framework developed by the US Black feminist legal scholar Dr. Kimberlé Crenshaw that recognizes how the intersecting aspects of a person’s identity (such as race, gender, sexuality, age, religion) compound and create interdependent experiences of discrimination and oppression. For example, a Black woman will experience sexism differently than a white woman and racism differently than a Black man, and her overall experiences will be unique from both. Intersectional feminism centers the voices of those experiencing overlapping forms of discrimination and oppression. It also recognizes the impacts of generational and historical oppressions.
