“For women in Canadian politics, there is no universal experience”

The fucking CBC just can’t stop themselves form publishing redeem garbage. :

“The term “intersectionality” was coined back in the 1980s by U.S. civil rights advocate and scholar Kimberlé Crenshaw, and she discussed it recently in her latest TED Talk. During the session, Crenshaw emphasized the importance of confronting both race and gender in situations of systemic discrimination. Crenshaw argued that in order to adequately identify and offer solutions in these scenarios, we have to recognize that just as the experiences of white men and men of colour differ greatly, so too do the experiences of white women and women of colour.”
