Jamie Utt points out the frequent misuse of the term “intersectionality,” which was coined by Kimberlé Crenshaw, feminist and Critical Race legal theory scholar. “[I]ntersectionality isn’t a theory of difference. It’s a theory of oppression. And when we treat it simply as a way to understand our differences, we erase its powerfully subversive critique. Thus, we need to recognize that it’s an act of intellectual, discursive, and rhetorical colonization for White folks (and folks with other forms of privilege) to erase the critique of power from our use of intersectionality.” Read the complete essay by clicking here.
