Intersectionality 101

intersectionality is a legal theory developed by Dr. Kimberle Crenshaw regarding the way that different forms of discrimination impact each other. for example, i myself and other bomb black hijabis are impacted by the intersections of race, gender, and religion on a daily basis.

i wanted to share some material that people can use to learn more about intersectionality as it is essential to complete liberation. this is by no means an exhaustive list, just some things that explain the concept of intersectionality pretty well imo This is a living document so check in for new pieces and send suggestions if you have any 🙂
