We examine categories of identity, such as race, gender, class and sexual orientation as they shape religious history and experience, recognizing that they are not mutually exclusive and should not be theoretically dissociated. Intersectionality explores questions beyond: "How do oppressions such as racism and sexism reinforce and compound one another?" -- to ask more fundamentally: "How is sexism a racist enterprise, and how does this impact the religious project?"
