CFP: Two Special Issues of Frontiers: A Journal of Women’s Studies
Women of Color and Gender Equity, due May 15, 2013
With this special issue, we commemorate the 40th anniversary of the 1974 Women’s Educational Equity Act which provided funds for Title IX and codified women’s equality under the law in the U.S. setting forth a foundation for antidiscrimination policies and remedies as well as cultivating a language and rhetoric for gender equity. For this issue, we will explore the nexus between the enactment of gender equity policies, rhetorical and political strategies for empowerment, and the lives of women of color.
Transnational Feminisms, due May 1, 2014
With this special issue, we commemorate the 40th anniversary of the first United Nations World Conference on Women that took place in Mexico City in 1975. In the forty years since, transnational feminisms, Native and indigenous feminisms, and women of color feminisms have troubled the idea of a global sisterhood while also providing tools to navigate the global realities of our contemporary societies.
