Intersectionality, Feminism, and Power – Writers Who Define our Times

May 1st, 12.00-1.00pm

“Inequality is not created equal,” the civil rights activist and scholar Kimberley Crenshaw once said.  Experiences of racial inequality intersect at gender, class, and sexuality; and as such, these identity markers do not exist independently of each other, but rather inform each other.  This intergenerational and multigenre panel of writers will share their insights and experiences of how their personal journeys as writers have influenced their craft and provided meaning on how and why they tell their stories.
