Gender, race, religion, faith? Rethinking intersectionality in German feminisms

Weber, B. M. (2014). “Gender, race, religion, faith? Rethinking intersectionality in German feminisms.” European Journal of Women’s Studies.
Despite the recent wave of scholarship on intersectionality, as well as a surge in feminist scholarship on Islam in German feminist studies, feminist research has yet to adequately engage with the role of religion in intersectionality. In this article the author draws on the work of the Aktionsbndnis muslimischer Frauen in Germany to explore the possibility for incorporating religion and faith into intersectional frameworks, which requires attention to women of color theorizing in German feminisms, recognition of ways in which religions and forms of secularism have been racialized, and recognition of affective attachment to faith.
