  3. 3. Two Things to Share: Sehreen, Ayla, and Baby Azali EdTechWomen Tokyo Chapter
  4. 4. Last year we talked about what equality looks like for women in our industry. A year later, regardless of where you stand politically, to achieve that equality, intersectionality in the women’s rights movement can no longer be ignored.
  5. 5. Today we are going to talk about that intersectionality. "Intersectionality simply means that there are lots of different parts to our womanhood, and those parts — race, gender, sexuality, and religion, and ability — are not incidental or auxiliary. They matter politically." — Brittney Cooper, Rutgers University
  6. 6. Today we are going to talk about intersectionality. An intersectional feminist movement ensures that the cries of all women are heard and that their demands are met. It recognizes that the oppression of women is not solely rooted in sexism but all types of “isms.” For example black women face unique challenges pertaining to their race and gender that white women do not face. LGBTQIA identifying women face different challenges than straight women. Women who encompass more than one identity face increased oppression. — Chloe Martin, Syracuse University on Kimberlé Crenshaw, UCLA / Columbia Law
