intersectionality

"intersectionality is a term coined by kimberlé williams crenshaw to describe overlapping or intersecting social identities and how that relates to systems of oppression, and how it can be the basis for domination and discrimination. These identities that can intersect include: gender and gender identity, race, class, ethnicity, nationality, sexual orientation, religion, age, mental health and physical disabilities as well as many other forms of identity."

angela davis on veganism

check out this great article breaking down how to be more intersectional in your approach to veganism.

all social inequities are linked. comprehensive systemic change will happen only if we are aware of these connections and work to bring an end to all inequalities—not just our favorites or the ones that most directly affect our part of the universe. no one is on the sidelines; by our actions or inactions, by our caring or our indifference, we are either part of the problem or part of the solution.
