It’s been 30 years since the term ‘intersectionality’ was first coined by Kimberlé Crenshaw. But what does it actually mean and how is it relevant to the UK legal system, if at all? In this event the panel will explore the history of intersectionality, the current state of UK anti-discrimination law and how it treats multiple ground discrimination, and the outlook for the future, including ways in which the law might be changed and ideas from other countries.


This event is organised in collaboration with the Human Rights Law Association.

Admission free. Advance booking required.
