Intersectionality, or the consideration of race, class, and gender, is one of the prominent contemporary theoretical contributions made by scholars in the field of womens studies that now broadly extends across the humanities, social sciences, andMoreIntersectionality, or the consideration of race, class, and gender, is one of the prominent contemporary theoretical contributions made by scholars in the field of womens studies that now broadly extends across the humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences.

Taking stock of this transformative paradigm, The Intersectional Approach guides new and established researchers to engage in a critical reflection about the broad adoption of intersectionality that constitutes what the editors call a new social literacy for scholars.In eighteen essays, contributors examine various topics of interest to students and researchers from a feminist perspective as well as through their respective disciplines, looking specifically at gender inequalities related to globalization, health, motherhood, sexuality, body image, and aging. Together, these essays provide a critical overview of the paradigm, highlight new theoretical and methodological advances, and make a strong case for the continued use of the intersectional approach both within the borders of womens and gender studies and beyond.Contributors: Lidia Anchisi, Gettysburg CollegeNaomi Andre, University of MichiganJean Ait Belkhir, Southern University at New OrleansMichele Tracy Berger, University of North Carolina at Chapel HillKia Lilly Caldwell, University of North Carolina at Chapel HillElizabeth R.
