Intersectionality, as the classic web definitions goes, is the acknowledgement that everyone has their own unique experiences of discrimination and oppression, and we must consider everything and anything that can marginalise people.

However, increasingly, intersectionality has become an important framework that delves into the multifaceted layers of identity and social categorisations, recognising that individuals experience overlapping and interconnected forms of oppression and privilege. Coined by legal scholar Kimberlé Crenshaw in the late 1980s, intersectionality transcends the simplicity of singular identity markers such as gender, race, class, sexual orientation, physical ability, etc., and instead, acknowledges the intricate interplay between these factors. This nuanced approach unveils the complex tapestry of human experience, revealing how various dimensions of identity converge to shape one’s lived reality.
