Intersectionality without Fragmentation

journal contribution
posted on 2024-01-12, 18:55 authored by Annette MartinAnnette Martin

Feminist philosophers have long worried that intersectionality undermines the via- bility of the concept and category of woman, thereby undermining feminist theory and politics. Some have responded to this problem by abandoning intersectionality; others have attempted to find some suitably inclusive way of reconceptualizing woman. I provide a novel solution that focuses on conceptualizing oppression in light of intersectionality, rather than trying to provide an account of what it is to be a woman. By enabling us to understand feminism as responding to gender oppression, this ac- count shows that intersectionality does not conceptually undermine and fragment feminism. Feminism should be intersectional.
