Kimberlé Crenshaw

„Consider an analogy to traffic in an intersection [dt. Straßenkreuzung], coming and going in all four directions. Discrimination, like traffic through an intersection, may flow in one direction, and it may flow in another. If an accident happens in an intersection, it can be caused by cars traveling from any number of directions and, sometimes, from all of them. Similarly, if a Black woman is harmed because she is in the intersection, her injury could result from sex discrimination or race discrimination“ (Crenshaw 1989: 149).
