Intersectionality is the overlapping or intersecting of identities and their experiences of oppression and discrimination.

Intersectionality recognises not only differences between identities (such as racial, gender, and LGBT+ identities) but within these. For example, the experiences of women of colour are different to those of white women. It is important that we recognise overlapping identities and that everyone has their own unique experiences of marginalisation and oppression in order to be truly inclusive.
