Feminist thoeries on intersectionality study the overlapping or intersecting social identities and related systems of oppression, domination, or discrimination. Among the factors intersectionality takes into account are gender, sexuality, nationality, race, origin, disability, age, religion and domicile. The term was coined by in 1989 by American civil rights advocate and leading scholar of critical race theory, Kimberlé Crenshaw. The RIKK 2024 spring lecture series is devoted to intersectionality.
