AJWS: Voices from Asian Feminist Activism
Voices from Asian Feminist Activism is a special corner in the Asian Journal of Women’s Studies (AJWS) created to capture individual or collective stories, narratives, and experiences of Asian activists, NGOs, and young scholars directly engaged in local activism and grassroots empowerment and emancipation programs for women, by women, through women, and with women.
Through this corner, AJWS seeks to provide a platform for theory building based on bold realities, model stories, and compelling challenges faced by women in contemporary Asian societies; to bridge the gap between scholarship of global knowledge and local knowledge; and to enrich women’s studies perspectives by providing an interface with feminist epistemologies from different locales and contexts of Asia. Submitted papers for this corner have to be shorter than the research articles published in this journal. The papers undergo the same screening procedure and the authors are expected to observe the same guidelines set forth by AJWS.
It is important to note that submissions for this corner are open to all activists and young scholars around the world, provided that Asia remains the central focus of the study. AJWS accepts submissions for this corner all year round. Before submitting your paper through the Editorial Manager system at www.editorialmanager.com/RAJW, please read and follow the instructions for authors and the style guidelines at www.tandfonline.com/RAJW.
