On April 1, 2005, the U.C. Davis Law Review hosted in its annual symposium an extremely distinguished group of scholars, who addressed central theories of Critical Race Feminism (“CRF”) in a daylong series of inspiring, thought-provoking, cutting-edge, and captivating presentations. The panelists at the symposium — in front of a packed room of students, professors, and local residents — delved into issues as diverse as the unique role of immigrant women in community economic development, societal failure to deal with domestic violence from a multidimensional perspective, the proposal of a contractual good faith claim based on Professors Devon Carbado and Mitu Gulati’s theory of working identity that puts foundational CRF theory into practice, the multidimensional nature of racial segregation as a system of subordination, and the recent ban on the headscarves worn by Islamic women in France. In so doing, they served as a tunnel through which knowledge and ideas concerning the intersection of racism, sexism, heterosexism, classism, and various other oppressions were transmitted.
