“My feminism will be intersectional or it will be bullshit”, writes Flavia Dzodan, feminist blogger at Tiger Beatdown, in perhaps one of the most well-known articles on the topic in the feminist blogosphere. One of the most important tenets of third wave feminism is the acknowledgement of the fact that gender and gender relations do not exist in a vacuum, but that they are, in fact, only a part of an intricate web of oppression and privileging based on a myriad of factors. Other important factors influencing the level of oppression someone faces are, for example, race, class, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion or disability. In this issue of Gender Forum, our contributors present a wide array of intersectional approaches to Women’s and Gender Studies.
