#AskHer Series: The Importance of Intersectional Feminism

For October’s #AskHer webinar, we talked to Dr. Kimberlé Williams Crenshaw, Co-founder and Executive Director of the African American Policy Forum. She is popularly known for her development of “intersectionality,” “Critical Race Theory,” and the #SayHerName Campaign, and is the host of the podcast Intersectionality Matters!.

Moderated by Interim President and CEO Jackie Lendsey, the conversation will focus on the importance of intersectional feminism. #AskHer / #AskThem is an interview series featuring women and gender non-conforming leaders, and The Women’s Foundation’s partners, community members and supporters who work tirelessly for women and girls. We curate in-depth conversations around complex issues affecting our constituents. Issues ranging from racism, racial justice, women, girls, intersectionality and more will be covered.
