According to Steve Williams in his article titled “What is Intersectionality and Why is it important?” Steve defines Intersectionality as “a sociological theory about how an individual can face multiple threats of discrimination when their identities overlap a number of minority classes, such as race, gender, age, ethnicity, health and other characteristics.”


Here are 5 MUST READS to stay in the loop of everyday feminism and intersectionality:

  1. Women, Race, and Class Written by Angela Y. Davis

  2. The Argonauts Written by Maggie Nelson

  3. Bad Feminist Written by Roxane Gay

  4. Feminism Is For Everybody Written by: Bell Hooks

  5. You Can’t Touch My Hair Written by: Phoebe Robinson


Although there are many other great reads out there such as “Black Feminist Thought” or “Between the World and Me,” I tried to include a diverse list of books to engage every type of reader. Whether you prefer a comical read on pop culture and feminism or a memoir style read into the life of a politically queer couple, there’s always something out there to peak your interest and keep you in the loop of intersectional feminism.

Happy Reading!
