The Journal of International Women’s Studies is an online, open-access, peer-reviewed feminist journal that provides a forum for scholars, activists, and students to explore the relationships among theories of gender and sexuality and various forms of organizing and critical practice.

Dear JIWS authors: The JIWS has received over 70 new submissions in the first month of January 2024, so we have once again had to close our submission portal. We are not accepting any new submissions until we can give these new submissions a peer review. Our submission portal will likely open again later in 2024. Please note that we do not accept article, essay, or creative submissions via email. One exception is that book and film reviews should be emailed directly to the book and film review editors listed in the Policies/Submissions page (see sidebar). If you have research relevant to the issue of women in digital spaces, we are seeking articles for a special issue, Digital Feminism and Women's Engagement with Online Spaces.
