Intersectionality and health explained
From Jenny Scott
This video - created by a research team in the Department of Sociological Studies, as part of an Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) funded project - considers a perspective called 'intersectionality', a term coined by Kimberlé Crenshaw to describe the discrimination experienced by black women, and how this can lead to differences in health.
So far, researchers and public health professionals have paid little attention to intersectionality. There has often been an assumption that one size fits all, and discrimination is rarely seen as an explanation of health differences. Yet, we are now starting to see signs that more and more, intersectionality is being taken seriously.
