Summary

We don't experience our everyday lives through just one lens; rather, we experience all elements of our identity--race, class, gender, sexuality--simultaneously. This ground-breaking, engaging, highly accessible new book acknowledges this reality and brings to light the importance of studying the intersections of race, class, gender, and sexuality, both as elements of personal identity and as sources of social inequality.
