Abstract

Victoria’s paper investigates how multiple identities are experienced at the intersection of national identity, ethnicity and gender, when articulating the narratives of professional British women with a BAME identity. The presentation will elaborate on decade’s worth of research which has uncovered the phenomenon of intersectionality, intersectionality looks at identity as a composite of many facets including gender, ethnicity, socio-economic status, nationality, sexuality, religion etc. Intersectional research is valuable and extremely topical.
