Intersectionality focuses on multiple different areas of potential discrimination and where they overlap with one another. It emphasizes a need to understand when they co-exist.
One can see how it is possible to be discriminated against both on the basis of your sex and color.

Intersectionality focuses on your group identity which becomes paramount over all else.
