In fact, issues of race, class and gender have been ignored by and large in Australian scholarship. This is especially reflected in the works of Australian feminist scholars who have consistently omitted race from works on gender and class (Moreton-Robinson 2000). As Australian critical Whiteness scholar and feminist Aileen Moreton-Robinson (2000: 33) argues, White feminists: ha[ve] been concerned with theorising oppressions, signified by differences embedded in power relations, which conceal white race privilege.

Intersectionality challenges the siloed nature of race, class and gender as concepts and social categories allowing for an examination of issues across groups and within them (Crenshaw 1991). Since Crenshaw’s work, the concept of intersectionality has been extended beyond race, class and gender to include other dimensions, such as sexuality, ethnicity and age ( Jordan-Zachery 2007; Weber 1998). In spite of the usefulness of intersectionality in theorising these multiple sites of inequality, studies applying an intersectionality framework have been critiqued for not considering power-relations of ‘unmarked categories’, such as Whiteness or masculinity (Choo and Ferree 2010; Moreton-Robinson 2000).
