The Effect of the Mommy Track and Intersectionality on Gender Equality

            It was clear to me after reading the comments on my previous blog post that I needed to further develop points on topics that I briefly talked about in my last post. Two commentors told me that it would be a good idea to read the articles that they posted in their comments so that I could further develop my points about the two issues. The two issues that the commentors want me to further develop my point on are Intersectionality and the mommy track. To do this I will use the articles that they provided for me to look at, as well as, one or two that I found myself.

And further, is this what feminism should be about? I want to shed a light on the topic of anti-capitalist feminism.
