Video Page: What is Intersectionality?

If feminism is about fighting for equality, then how can we ensure that our feminism is truly inclusive and equal? Does it feature only a certain kind of voice or experience, and not take into account the multiple axes of oppression that another group of people may face? This is where intersectionality comes in – to help us recognise that there isn’t only one type of marginalisation, that multiple oppressed minorities face discrimination and alienation on multiple levels, and that they ‘intersect’ in complex ways. Vitamin Stree’s video, What Is Intersectionalitycomprehensively explains these important intersections and helps us reflect on how we can strive to listen to and involve diverse voices in the ways that we think about and practice our feminisms.
