Invisible people with invisible pain: A commentary on “Even my sister says I'm acting like a crazy to get a check”: Race, gender, and moral boundary-work in women's claims of disabling chronic pain

This commentary to Pryma's (2017) article on women with fibromyalgia argues that intersectional approaches to health research can reveal not only how racialized institutions shape illness experience and medical care, but also how these institutions make some individuals visible, while rendering others invisible. Perhaps by adopting an intersectional approach to understanding health, we can start to unpack the multiple jeopardies faced by people of color in pain.
