The World’s Top 50 Thinkers 2019
“The best thinkers are able to draw lines from history to the present day. That is certainly the case with Kimberlé Williams Crenshaw, the lawyer and professor who coined the term “intersectionality” three decades ago. Created to help explain the intersecting forms of oppression faced by African-American women, Crenshaw’s term is now used widely in discussions of racial inequality and various forms of social justice, and has been cited as helping inform the Constitution of South Africa. More recently, she has shone crucial light on police brutality and challenge violence against women and girls worldwide.”
