What is intersectionality?

10 dimensions of identity

  1. Race and color
  2. Sex and gender
  3. Ethnicity
  4. Socioeconomic status and class
  5. Sexual orientation
  6. Disability and mental health
  7. Age
  8. Religion
  9. Urban/suburban/rural
  10. Family status - Married, divorced, single, cohabiting
Are there other dimensions that you would like to add?

Supposing your identity is a single black poor gay muslim female who lives in a large city and is 32 years old with cerebral palsy?

Supposing you are a married white middle class Catholic male who lives in the country and is 42 and owns a large farm with 3,000 acres which grows primarily corn and soybeans?

What is your identity description in one sentence?

What do the three of you have in common?
