Thirty years ago, the American lawyer Kimberlé Crenshaw developed the concept of intersectionality. She criticized the US anti-discrimination law. Meanwhile, intersectionality is a theoretical and political concept of justice, through which interwoven systems of rule such as racism, capitalism and patriarchy as well as their various forms of discrimination become clear.
With the publication, "Reach Everyone on the Planet ...,"the Gunda Werner Institute and the Center for Intersectional Justice (CIJ) wants to honor Kimberlé Crenshaw and to illustrate the importance of the intersectional approach through a variety of contributions.
With this book, the Gunda Werner Institute for Feminism and Gender Democracy in the Heinrich Böll Foundation continues a series of honors from feminist thinkers and activists.
