What Intersectionality Really Means for Movements: Prof Kimberlé W. Crenshaw

Laura is joined this week by celebrated academic, organizer, and advocate Professor Kimberlé Williams Crenshaw, who is perhaps best known for coining the term intersectionality.

In order to use this moment effectively and strategically to change culture, according to Crenshaw, we have to build movements that use genuine intersectional analysis to point out differences and commonalities.

Plus a look at the #SayHerName campaign, founded by Crenshaw and an F-word from Laura on why month-designations like Women’s History Month aren’t effective unless we also make a month to cross-examine the white capitalist cis het patriarchy.
