Intersectionality and Marxism

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Black feminists' concept of intersectionality, with its emphasis on the simultaneous experiences of gender, race, class, and sexual oppression, is not only is compatible with Marxism but can also strengthen it. While postmodern interpretations of intersectionality are often confused with that of Black feminists, they are quite different. This talk aims to clear up the confusion.
