More recent work in socio-legal studies also has begun to question thelimits of intersectional analysis (Grabham et al. 2009). Itacknowledges the importance of intersectionality, a term coined by lawprofessor Kimberlé Crenshaw (1989) to shed light on epistemicinjustice done to Black women in anti-discrimination law. Yet, despiteits merit for overcoming the dual system’s theoretical impasse,Joanna Conaghan also critiques the essentializing tendencies ofintersectional analysis which succeeds mainly dealing with race andgender oppression at an individual level, but it has little to offerto remedy structural injustice. Furthermore, because such method isidentity-focused it will not get at the dimension of class which hasbeen traditionally thought in relational not locational terms (2008,29–30).
