CfP: Global Women’s Movements in Changing Societies (Publication), Deadline: 16.06.2008

Women for Women International, a non-profit humanitarian organization, seeks submissions for the Fall 2008 issue of its bi-annual academic journal, Critical Half.
This issue will focus on global women’s movements and women’s movements globally in various contexts, including politics, women’s rights, social change, religion, and economic endeavors. Women’s movements may be global in their organization or effects, as in the international feminist movement, or they may be global in their concerns but local or ‘grassroots’ in their organization and immediate impact. Papers might consider the genesis and logistics of women’s movements; the underlying ideological concerns which give rise to and sustain, or counteract, these movements; or the interaction of women’s movements with local, regional, and global organizations, such as religious groups, political parties, or local or international local women’s groups.
Papers which address issues of women’s movements in conflict and post-conflict societies, developing countries, and trans-national contexts are particularly encouraged.
Articles should be 2,000-2,500 words long. For further information, including topic suggestions, article possibilities, and submission guidelines, please see
Women for Women International provides women survivors of war, civil strife, and other conflicts with the tools and resources to move from crisis and poverty to stability and self-sufficiency, thereby promoting viable civil societies.

It targets the international development and post-conflict reconstruction communities, including government policymakers, the United Nations, non-governmental organizations, U.S. foundations, academics, and philanthropists, as well as the grassroots supporters of Women for Women International and its programs.
