VIDEO- Living at the Intersection

Educator, writer, and activist Brittany Packnett delivers a talk at the New York Times about intersectionality. She draws attention to obstacles that women face in their workplaces and how women of color or black women face even more difficulties because of both their race and their gender.

Kimberlé Crenshaw, pioneer of critical race theory, defines intersectionality as “a metaphor for understanding the ways that multiple forms of inequality or disadvantage sometimes compound themselves and create obstacles that are often not understood within conventional ways of thinking.”
