Such an approach seems to hold out considerable promise in understanding and dealing with ‘multiple’ discrimination. One may ask, however, whether the promise of this approach is fatally limited if it includes extreme scepticism about the efficacy of individual acts of will. Kathryn Abrams has attempted to resolve this problem by developing a theory that allows for the possibility of self-definition and multiple discrimination 31 self-direction – which she calls agency, to distinguish it from liberal autonomy – while at the same time recognising that the process of selfdefinition is powerfully shaped by the forces of social construction in a context of unequal power relations (Abrams 1999).

Anti-essentialist critiques have tended to focus on identifying the multiple aspects of identity and how they interact in order to remedy feminist and anti-racist theorists’ focus on gender and race in isolation from each other and additional aspects of identity such as class. Crenshaw focuses her critique on the way we define discrimination, which includes more than identification of identity categories. She makes the experiences of black women the starting point of her critique, explaining that by doing so: it becomes more apparent how dominant conceptions of discrimination condition us to think about subordination as disadvantage occurring along a single categorical axis.

Crenshaw argues that black women often experience ‘double-discrimination’ – the combined effects of practices which discriminate on the basis of race and sex simultaneously, and that these experiences should be understood as occurring at the intersection of race and sex discrimination (1989: 149).
