Intersectionality (2016)


Sirma Bilge and Patricia Hill Collins


“Intersectionality is a way of understanding and analyzing the complexity in the world, in people, and in human experiences.

The events and conditions of social and political life and the self can seldom be understood as shaped by one factor. They are generally shaped by many factors in diverse and mutually influencing ways.

When it comes to social inequality, people’s lives and the organization of power in a given society are better understood as being shaped not by a single axis of social division, be it race or gender or class, but by many axes that work together and influence each other.

Intersectionality as an analytic tool gives people better access to the complexity of the world and of themselves.”

Patricia H. Collins & Sirma Bilge
