Let’s Get Intersectional.
Coined by Kimberlé Crenshaw and examined by bell hooks and Audre Lorde, intersectionality is an essential framework in understanding how social categorizations and identities—such as race, class, ability, sexual orientation, gender—overlap and intersect to create unique experiences of oppression. Because all inequality is not created equal and homogeneity is limited to a single narrative.
For me, intersectionality is radical inclusion in practice. It concerns itself with the redistribution of power and justice that intersectionality can bring for those who are on the margins.
At GOOD TO BE GOOD, we attempt to apply an intersectional lens to our work so hopefully, we don’t get to the position where someone might say, “This isn’t for me. This is for someone else.”
Thank you to the magnificent women and individuals for bringing this message to life. I respect you, I admire you. Your love for radical equality is a public good. ✊🏾 Friends, please follow their work below! 👇🏾
Today is #InternationalWomensDay. And we have something to say.
We invite you to get intersectional today—and every day—so that no woman and gender-diverse person gets left behind.
