Peggy McIntosh TEDx talk


We’re discussing Peggy McIntosh’s “White Privilege and Male Privilege: A Personal Account of Coming to See Correspondences Through Work in Women’s Studies” in Queer Literature and Theory later this afternoon. I found this TEDx talk that McIntosh gave that sets up the article nicely; also, her talk lets us know that she didn’t just write the article and move onto something new. She’s a true scholar-activist in that she’s devoted her life to exposing and dismantling systems of privilege.
