Intersectionality in context in order to understand the limitations of intersectionality from a marxist perspective we of course have to consider the main tenets of intersectionality itself and the historical context in which it gained ascendency. Intersectionality is defined in very different ways but the concept as developed by black feminists can help advance marxist theory and practice. The author argues that intersectionality is less valuable as an explanatory framework than as an ideological reflection of the times although intersectionality can usefully describe the effects of multiple oppressions i propose it does not offer an adequate explanatory framework for addressing the root causes of social inequality in the capitalist socioeconomic system. As the first monograph entirely devoted to this issue marxism and intersectionality serves as a tool for activists and academics working against multiple systems of domination exploitation and oppression
