Join Ruby and Celeste as they unpack one of feminism’s enduring questions from their unique perspectives: what exactly is the purpose of “intersectionality” and what should its goals be? Delving into the worlds of political thought, social commentary, popular culture, and online exchange, Ruby and Celeste will examine the benefits, pitfalls, and misconceptions of intersectionality; drawing on their own experiences in navigating this particular strand of mainly feminist thought while in the public eye.
