“The urgency of intersectionality” a Ted Talk with Kimberlé Crenshaw.

Now more than ever, it’s important to look boldly at the reality of race and gender bias — and understand how the two can combine to create even more harm. Kimberlé Crenshaw uses the term “intersectionality” to describe this phenomenon; as she says, if you’re standing in the path of multiple forms of exclusion, you’re likely to get hit by both. In this moving talk, she calls on us to bear witness to this reality and speak up for victims of prejudice.

You could read here the paper of Kimberle Crenshaw “Mapping the Margins: Intersectionality, Identity Politics, and Violence against Women of Color“(Stanford Law Review,Vol. 43, No. 6 (Jul., 1991), pp. 1241-1299)
