What Is Intersectionality?
We all have a variety of identities based on our race, class, gender, sexuality, religious beliefs, ability, size, citizenship status, and geographic location.
No one identity is necessarily more important than the other, and everyone values certain parts of their identities differently. While the way we identify ourselves is personal and
varied, the way society treats us based on our identities often follows troubling and violent patterns of discrimination and disadvantage.
