“Demarginalizing the Intersection of Race and Sex” written by Kimberle Crenshaw. In this reading it explains how race, class and gender are one of the main factors that creates inequality. Even if you are women and a feminist, you are viewed differently if you are a women of color than a women with white privileged. Kimberle Crenshawn argues that “Black women are sometimes excluded from feminist theory and antiracist policy discourse because both are predicated on a discrete set of experiences that often does not accurately reflect the interaction of race and gender.” (Page 140). Black feminist experience intersectionality differently and how privileged is played out differently amongst society and how women of color conquer obstacles that they face in everyday basics. Kimberle Crenshaw states that the problem cannot be solved by just involving black women into the structure that society has built. A black feminist experiences race, class and gender differently due to the categorization that we are placed that society has created upon us.
The reading also explains how women’s oppression of intersectionality are experiencing in the same era. The author also demonstrates serval examples of how black women are being discriminated in the work place because they are women and women of color which makes it difficult for them.
