Intersectionality is a fundamental part of feminism, but often feminists use the term without understanding the history of the term or how we should incorporate intersectionality in our praxis. With this in mind, Feminist Book Club is reading “Mapping the Margins: Intersectionality, Identity Politics and Violence Against Women of Color” by Kimblere Crenshaw. Crenshaw is credited with coining the term intersectionality. You can read the article here.
The other article is Megan Murphy’s article “Millennials co-opting intersectionality: My Feminism is Better Than Yours.” This article discusses how intersectionality is falsely used to silence opinions within feminism. You can find the article here.
