In eighteen essays, contributors examine various topics of interest to students and researchers from a feminist perspective as well as through their respective disciplines, looking specifically at gender inequalities related to globalization, health, motherhood, sexuality, body image, and aging. Together, these essays provide a critical overview of the paradigm, highlight new theoretical and methodological advances, and make a strong case for the continued use of the intersectional approach both within the borders of women's and gender studies and beyond.

"The Intersectional Approach takes intersectionality a giant leap forward by putting theory into action in research methodologies as well as in the classroom, the community, and public policy. Berger and Guidroz give scholars and students an excellent foundation in intersectional analysis and a vision of exciting possibilities for its future."--Dorothy Roberts, Northwestern University, author of Killing the Black Body: Race, Reproduction, and the Meaning of Liberty
"By carefully selecting classic and contemporary essays written by key figures in the field as well as new critical voices, the editors cast fresh eyes on the theoretical issues, methodological innovations, and challenges that confront intersectionality as theory and praxis. An extremely valuable collection that captures the spirit of this emerging, important, and exciting field of study."--Patricia Hill Collins, University of Maryland
