The claim of intersectionality, a theory stating identities are built in a social context by a complex system of multiple and simultaneous structures of oppression, is increasingly present in feminist studies and researches. Even though feminism has fought against women oppression, it has not always succeeded in including claims of those groups of women coming from the margins. This essay discusses the genealogy of intersectionality, from the earlier conceptualizations, stem from Black feminism in the Eighties, until the later theorizations, made in the context of the decolonial feminism. This essay precisely aims to shed light on the invisibilized contributions from Latin America, and particularly, of decolonial feminism, making also the point on the importance of an intersectional comprehension of the legal subject.
