Activity - The Culture of You

1. Watch this episode of MTV’s series “Braless” which provides a short introduction to the concept of intersectional feminism.
2. After the film, students should discuss what they think intersectionality means.
3. Brainstorm the various categories that make us who we are (e.g., role in family, background, personality traits, physical characteristics.) Show students a model Identity Chart and invite them to create their own.
4. Invite students to select one aspect of their identity and reflect upon how that quality affects their life (e.g., daughter of immigrants). Then ask: Would you be the same person if that quality changed? If, for example, instead of being the oldest child, you were the youngest? With this brief personal activity students will begin to think about the ways various parts of their own identities intersect.
