Discussion Post: Intersection-WHA?:
In this module, we’re discussing the concept of intersectionality. The readings (and cartoons!) you’ve read for today are designed to get you thinking about what, in general, intersectionality is, and what it means for gender and for feminism.
This discussion is an opportunity for you to explore your ideas, express confusion, get some clarification, and maybe pose some questions about what the heck intersectionality means and why the heck it’s useful for feminism.
(Like: um, isn’t feminism about women? Why do we need to talk about race, ethnicity, socioeconomic class, gender identity, sexuality, or disability?)
So, in at least 400 words, explore what you think intersectionality means, supporting your ideas with quotes from the readings, and if you’re confused about something, feel free to say so! Use this as an opportunity to try to understand better through discussion, and to ask questions. Tip: it’s always good to use direct quotes from the readings, but this is especially true if you’re struggling!
