Intersectionality: a fun guide [now in PowerPoint / presentation formation]

It’s so good to see Bob the Triangle being shared across the Internet and even used in workshops and as course material around the world.

I’ve had a number of requests to upload a higher resolution version of the picture, or one in a format more suited to presentations. So without further ado, here is the story of Bob the Triangle in six standalong images that can be put together in a presentation, etc. (And I think the spelling mistakes have been solved now…) Just click on the images to view them full-size, and you can save them individually. As ever all I ask is that you link back here or to my Twitter. Happy intersectionality-promoting!

  1. Hi Miriam, I love your work (and I also love that you’ve quoted Illich!)
    I’m putting together a mardi gras float for the Sydney Queer Atheists, with intersectionality as a theme, and hoping to figure out how to use Bob! I’ll let you know how we go – or if you have ideas, I’d be delighted to hear them, too!

  2. is it too late to change teh character’s name to something gender-neutral like Christy?
    not to say that in any way detracts from the comic as is, just that it would be more punchy (I think) if the name were gender-neutral. But I love it! awesome comic!!

    1. I’ve had this conversation before and yeah, I think if I’d thought about it longer something more gender neutral would have been good. However Bob can be used as a male or female name (short for Roberta) and is quite catchy so personally I don’t think it’s too bad a choice 🙂 If you are using the illustration in training or education of course feel free to change the name to something you’re more comfortable with 🙂

  3. Love this!! I had to Google image search to find this blog – I had stumbled across the last slide as a stand-alone photo without attribution – I forget where, but I saved it for a presentation coming up. I wanted to give the right person attribution during my pres, and lo and behold, there’s a whole story here! So awesome!!
    I will be trying to track down that other blog to remind them to add your Twitter handle. Way to be awesome, thank you, I will definitely be using this series in the future. 🙂

  4. I first came across this when I went to the True Colors Conference at UCONN. Participating in this group was phenomenal, it was peer facilitated along with a staff member and it created so much conversation an participants were testimonial. I now supervise 10 peer educators and introduced this to them. We now use it in our curriculum around intersectionality. THANK YOU!

  5. This is great! The Michigan Coalition to End Domestic & Sexual Violence has made it a policy to incorporate intersectionality into all of our trainings we provide for domestic violence advocates and sexual assault advocates. We’re also teaching intersectionality at college campuses, dealing with Title IX issues. We would love to use this in our curriculum. Thank you for sharing this!
