Increasingly feminist scholars in a variety of disciplines are identifying the importance of an intersectional approach to feminist analysis. This approach, however, has a number of different manifestations, both theoretical and methodological. In this session presenters reflect on the use of intersectionality in feminist theory, methodology and policy, including a reflection on the strengths, the limitations, the implications and/or the challenges using feminist intersectional analysis. The conversation in this session will, we hope, generate new insights and/or critiques about feminist intersectionality.
