Since the last few years, #MeToo has given global and local feminist movements the confidence to transcend and affect so many changes in women’s lives. The #MeToo platform has transformed the gender relations in social and political spheres and, more importantly, the state of women’s powerlessness to empowerment.

To commemorate International Women’s Day on March 8 — a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women and a day that also marks a call to action for accelerating women's equality—the Editors of the Asian Journal of Women Studies (AJWS) together with Routledge have launched a virtual special issue “Women and Empowerment.” 

Articles featured advocate for women’s empowerment in different spheres of life, including tribal women’s empowerment in India, individual and collective empowerment in China, strategies for engagement and the development of agency and empowerment in Bangladesh, zero tolerance for violence against women in Indonesia and more.

AJWS aims to share and disseminate information and scholarly ideas about women's issues in Asia and all over the world, with the view to develop women's studies in Asia and expand the horizon of western-centered women's studies.
