The Intersectionality Feature

Pamela Jew, Veronica Liow

As we become more aware of issues related to identity, it is increasingly evident that intersectionality is a must when addressing how to tackle these. Given that intersectionality, coined by Kimberlé Crenshaw, began with the feminist movement, the Intersectionality Feature focuses on issues that plague female and femme-identifying individuals. We look at how the feminist movement has evolved through its four waves, beginning with the fight for women’s suffrage. We’ve also broken down these issues into little niches, from the media’s and society’s misconceptions about Asian women to the struggles of women in corporate America to a film about women leading the battlefield in Nicaragua — although there are more crossroads to cover. In the words of our powerful leader, Beyoncé Knowles, “Who runs the world? Girls.”
