Intersectionality is a concept that recognizes and explores the interconnected nature of social categorizations such as race, gender, class, sexual orientation, ability, and other identity markers. Coined by Kimberlé Crenshaw, a legal scholar and civil rights advocate, intersectionality emphasizes that these categories do not exist independently but rather intersect and interact, creating unique and often compounded experiences of discrimination or privilege.

For example, a woman of color may face different challenges compared to a white woman or a man of color, as she navigates the intersections of racism and sexism simultaneously.

This concept encourages a more comprehensive understanding of social issues, as it acknowledges that individuals can experience various forms of oppression or privilege based on the interplay of different social identities. Recognizing intersectionality is crucial for addressing systemic inequalities and promoting inclusivity and social justice.
