Intersectionality is a term coined by critical race theory, legal and Black feminist scholar, Kimberlé Crenshaw, who shares that it is "a frame for understanding how multiple systems and experiences of marginalization compound"
Another way to understand systems of privilege and oppression are through "isms" or the names often given to these systems and various forms of oppression (for example, racism, sexism, ableism, classism)
Complex and interwoven structures (laws, policies, social norms, rituals, institutions) that reinforce and maintain domination, power and marginalization for the corresponding social identity group(s)
According to the National Education Association, white supremacy refers to both a "political ideology and systemic oppression that perpetuates and maintains the social, political, historical and/or industrial white domination"
