Kimberlé Crenshaw

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

One way to approach the problem of intersectionality is to examine how courts frame and interpret the stories of Black women plaintiffs. While I cannot claim to know the circumstances underlying the cases that I will discuss, I nevertheless believe that the way courts interpret claims made by Black women is Itself part of Black women’s experience and, consequently, a cursory review of cases involving Black female plaintiffs is quite revealing.

Crenshaw’s Mapping the Margins is also worth a read.
