Challenging Inequality

Through Intersectional Research and Teaching



Coined in 1989 by professor Kimberlé Crenshaw, the term intersectionality helped highlight the ways in which people are often disadvantaged by multiple sources of oppression: their race, class, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, and other identity markers. 

In this moving TED talk, Crenshaw calls on us to bear witness to this reality and speak up for victims of prejudice.
