While most scholars in the field of gender studies are convinced that intersectionality is essential to good feminist theory, it is not always clear how intersectionality should actually be used in the context of research. In practice, intersectionality raises a lot of questions that prove quite difficult if not impossible to answer.
Many feminist researchers struggle with uncertainties concerning how to apply intersectionality to their own research concerns. That’s why, we need a methodology.
