You may download and freely use these measures for non-commercial research purposes, with appropriate citation. Intersectionality is a framework grounded in Black, Indigenous, and women of color feminist scholarship and critical race theory. In the spirit of promoting research guided by intersectionality’s core principles, I encourage engagement with key writings on intersectionality and guidelines for quantitative intersectionality research prior to using these measures. Please note that we are currently testing modified versions of these measures based on cognitive interview findings from our ongoing NIH-funded study. Feel free to contact me for additional information.
