In her paper “Mapping the Margins: Intersectionality, Identity Politics, and Violence Against Women of Color” , Kimberlé Crenshaw states that “Although racism and sexism readily intersect in the lives of real people, they seldom do in feminist and antiracist practices” (Crenshaw). Crenshaw points to the real problem that arises from identity politics--if experiences of discrimination are only delegated to the bounds of either being a woman or being a person of color, the experience of being a woman of color cannot be told. This is not to say that there is a problem with identifying with others who are discriminated against, but rather that there is a problem with the rigidity of these definitions in their exclusion of women of color.

One of the most predominant themes in “The Woman Warrior” is finding ones voice. Throughout the book, voice is referenced many times and most often as a disability of the women in Kingston’s memoirs. Being voiceless is not always a defect that one is born with but can also be due to societal pressures and expectations. The women that appeared as voiceless in the book were most often the ones that did not have an identity of their own. They simply led their lives following someone with a voice hoping that they would be able to live under the shelter of other’s voices.
