Asian Women seeks submissions for recent gender issues such as women and welfare, women’s rights, eco-feminism, health, women and biotechnology, women and history, men’s studies and other relevant themes in gender studies.
Black Women, Gender and Families (BWGF) welcomes research and theoretical submissions in history, sociology, anthropology, psychology, education, economics, political science, and English that are framed by Black Women’s Studies perspectives and a policy or social analysis. Interdisciplinary, comparative, and transnational studies of the African Diaspora and other women, families, and communities of color are also encouraged.
The primary mission of BWGF is to analyze, develop, and further Black Women’s Studies paradigms. It centers the study of Black women and gender within the critical discourses of history, the social sciences, and the humanities. Second, this journal provides an Africana/Black Studies and Women’s Studies cross-field and interdisciplinary venue for Black womanist and Black feminist theories, methodologies, and analyses. Third, it more fully integrates gender as an analytic category, and strengthens Black Women’s Studies as a paradigm for studying black women, gender, families, and communities–especially policy-related issues within the broader disciplines of Black Studies and Women’s Studies. Fourth, this journal provides the space for interdisciplinary, comparative/transnational studies of Global Africa/the African Diaspora and other women, families, and communities of color.
The journal Comment S’en Sortir? seeks submissions for inclusion in issue no. 1. In this issue of Comment S’en Sortir? we wish to map the alliances, common struggles and translations of concepts between trans, feminist, anti-racist and queer movements and theories that we collect under the concept of “transfeminisms”.

“On ne naît pas femme: on le devient”: The Life of a Sentence
Beauvoir’s famous sentence, “On ne naît pas femme: on le devient,” has been understood to be the very heart of The Second Sex as the book has made its way into many languages and contexts. Yet the meaning of the sentence in French remains ambiguous. The purpose of this volume is to trace, through a collection of essays that take this one sentence as their starting point, the life of the sentence as it moves between languages, into and out of different political, social and cultural contexts.
