What is intersectional feminism?

Feminism is the doctrine advocating social, political, and other rights of women equal to those of men. It is an organized movement for the attainment of such rights. Although it shares a common goal with egalitarianism (equality), feminism approaches the problem by advocating for women.
Intersectionality Theory disputes the idea that women are a homogeneous category sharing the same life experiences. It was coined by legal scholar Kimberlé Crenshaw in 1989 when she wrote that the experience of being a black woman must be understood through the synthesis of race and gender.
