Introduced in 1989 by Dr Kimberlé Crenshaw, intersectionality has grown into a popular concept that served as a tool to explore different forms of discrimination, how they overlap across identities, and the processes that facilitate them.
Its essence is valued across disciplines, and health is no exception. In the recent Lancet Series, intersectionality is a core conceptual pillar used to explore the impact that health has across global contexts. In this Quarterly, we expand on this theme: Read on for book reviews, expert spotlights, and academic highlights about gender, migration, Indigenous health, and maternal health.
If you believe in the work we do, continue to engage with Quarterly, follow us on social media, and importantly, fund us.
