Product description

Review

“Comprehensive and highly accessible, Intersectionality is set to become the go-to book for students, activists, policy makers, and teachers looking for an analytic tool to help identify and challenge social inequalities and achieve social justice.”
Nancy Naples, University of Connecticut

“Patricia Hill Collins and Sirma Bilge shed new light on intersectionality by showing how people across the globe use it as an analytical and organizing tool for protesting against social injustices and solving social problems. Their clear explanations and real-world examples covering a wide range of issues make intersectionality highly accessible and practicable to scholars, students, and activists alike. This book will be essential reading for understanding how power operates and is contested in our neoliberal age.”
Dorothy Roberts, University of Pennsylvania
 

Product Description

The concept of intersectionality has become a hot topic in academic and activist circles alike. But what exactly does it mean, and why has it emerged as such a vital lens through which to explore how social inequalities of race, class, gender, sexuality, age, ability and ethnicity shape one another?

In this new book Patricia Hill Collins and Sirma Bilge provide a much-needed, introduction to the field of intersectional knowledge and praxis. They analyze the emergence, growth and contours of the concept and show how intersectional frameworks speak to topics as diverse as human rights, neoliberalism, identity politics, immigration, hip hop, global social protest, diversity, digital media, Black feminism in Brazil, violence and World Cup soccer. Accessibly written and drawing on a plethora of lively examples to illustrate its arguments, the book highlights intersectionality's potential for understanding inequality and bringing about social justice oriented change.

Intersectionality will be an invaluable resource for anyone grappling with the main ideas, debates and new directions in this field.
