It is the interaction between these interlocking oppressions that has been
described as intersectionality. First coined by legal scholar Kimberle Crenshaw (
2016), the concept is meant to describe micro-level processes of categorisation
by which various others are gendered, classed, racialised and otherwise
classified, according to a range of normative standards (Rose, 2013; Young,
1990). Intersectionality has become the leading way in which feminist scholars
have described the ...

65 The term intersectional refers to something which cuts into something else.
The concept of intersectionality describes a cluster of theoretical positions which
seek to revise the view that identity categories, and the web of social relations in
which they are located, are experienced as 'separate roads' (Roth, 2004). While
this necessarily takes in more than ethnicity or gender therefore, the provenance
of the concept may be traced to a particular black feminist critique of the ways in ...

Proponents of intersectionality argue that approaches to discrimination that focus
on single category descriptions fail to reflect the reality that people inhabit
multiple identities, that they are members of more than one community at the
same time, and that as a result it is possible for a person to experience both
disadvantage and privilege simultaneously. Legal theorist Kimberlé Crenshaw is
often cited as a conceptual entrepreneur on this issue, detailing the structural,
political, and ...

Intersectionality is the approach used to recognise multiple forms of inequality in
social research. The term was first coined by black feminist law scholar Kimberlé
Crenshaw (1989), where she used the image of a traffic intersection to explain
her point: discrimination, like traffic through an intersection, may flow in one
direction, and it may flow in another. If an accident happens in an intersection, it
can be caused by cars traveling from any number of directions and, sometimes,
from all of ...

However, it wasn't until just over two decades ago that the theoretical concept
found its name. The term intersectionality was coined by Kimberlé Crenshaw (
1989) in her seminal critique of US antidiscrimination law and its failure to
acknowledge Black women's unique experiences of racism and sexism as
simultaneous and inseparable. As Crenshaw argued, if there is no unified group
of women that experience gender dis crimination in the same way, it makes no
sense to treat sexism ...

Knapp, 2008, p. 138). After all, 'intersectionality' can appear as theory, method,
perspective, approach or heuristic device. 'Intersectionality' is in opposition to the
'Histoire croisée' rooted in a feminist theoretical tradition, which often entails an
emancipatory and critical approach (Walgenbach 2010, pp. 245f.). The English
Wikipedia entry on 'intersectionality' indicates that 'Standpoint epistemology' and '
resisting oppression' can be seen as key concepts of 'intersectionality'. According

I took away from both group projects that it is one thing to memorize course
material and regurgitate it on an exam, yet another to use the material as analytic
tools and present my analysis to my peers. This learning process was
enlightening because I had to mine the material finely to ensure my confidence in
endorsing the concept of intersectionality when explaining it to others, reflect on
my own ideas about masculinity, race, and social class, and identify common
interests at key ...

To this we might add that the key issue of an intersectionality analysis is 'how
oppression, subordination and privilege cut across different systems of
differentiation' (Borchorst and Teigen 2010: 19). In this volume we chose to work
with a concept of 'political intersectionality', as distinct from structural
intersectionality approaches that have dominated the literature to date. We view
intersectional challenges to traditional equality policy and politics approaches at
two levels. First, the ...
