Women In and Beyond the Global Open Access Feminist Journal (WIBG)


WIBG, an open-access, peer-reviewed feminist journal publishes and supports work from around the globe that analyzes and works to change the status and conditions of women in global households, prisons, and cities. We publish interdisciplinary analyses, creative expressions (including film and music), reports from the field, interviews, and artworks that are committed to feminist praxis, understood as analysis and action focusing on the empowerment of women. Our aim to break down barriers between academic and activist knowledge by fueling activist scholarship; encouraging collective reflection on feminist movement-building; and documenting and preserving these activities through digital media—a critical tool in the global struggles for women’s equality and the promotion of democracy.

Submissions may address, but are not limited to, the following kinds of topics/questions:

  • Women in the global prison
  • Domestic work
  • Urbanization and women
  • Popular education and women
  • Feminization of poverty
  • Feminist movement building
  • Women and the global food crisis
  • Survival economies and women
  • Feminist analysis of global cities, prisons, and households
  • How globalization changes lives, including sexual lives, of women
  • Globalization’s affective economies
  • Reproductive labor(s)
  • Open Access & feminist movement building

WIBG accepts submissions on a rolling basis. We invite submissions by July 1st for our inaugural issue. See Authors' Guidelines for more information.
