About the Journal

WORLD WOMEN STUDIES JOURNAL is an interdisciplinary international journal which publishes articles relating to women, gender, society from the scientific perspective covering a wide range of subject areas including the social and natural sciences, the arts, the humanities and popular culture. The journal seeks articles from around the world that examine women, society, and science. Removing structural barriers to women’s success in science, technology and engineering is very important to achieve gender equity and women’s empowerment. When women have the tools and opportunities they need to thrive in the careers of their choice, everyone benefits. We have seen major progress in the last few years, as more and more women are entering underrepresented fields and being recognized for their work. There are key questions. What are the strategies  to achieve wender equity? How about eliminating violence about women? Are we satisfied with the progress of women’s rights in every field? How to build a equal & just society involving different & diversified members of the community?

In drafting papers authors should consider the readability of their paper for readers outside of their discipline. Articles appearing in WORLD WOMEN STUDIES JOURNAL analyze women and gender in interactions, organizations, societies, and global and transnational spaces. The journal primarily publishes empirical articles, which are both theoretically engaged and methodologically rigorous, including qualitative, quantitative, and comparative methodologies. The journal also publishes reviews of books from a diverse array of social science disciplines.
