“Intersectionality is just a metaphor for understanding the ways that multiple forms of inequality or disadvantage sometimes compound themselves and they create obstacles that often are not understood in conventional ways of thinking about anti-racism or feminism or whatever social justice advocacy structures we have” – Kimberle Crenshaw

Animated explanations and video presentations delve into the concept of intersectionality. This section has resources to help understand what intersectionality is.
