Demarginalizing the Intersection of Race and Sex: A Black Feminist Critique of Antidiscrimination Doctrine, Feminist Theory and Antiracist Politics

There is oftentimes a tendency to treat race and gender as mutually exclusive categories of experience and analysis. In this article, the author wants to examine how this tendency is perpetuated by a single-axis framework that is dominant in antidiscrimination law and that is also reflected in feminist theory and antiracist politics. Black women are the center of her analysis, in order to contrast the multidimensionality of Black women’s experience with the single-axis analysis that distorts these experiences.
