Featured Journal for March

JOWH-MarIn recognition of Women’s History Month, Reese Library’s Featured Journal is the Journal of Women’s History. Published by The Johns Hopkins University Press, it is the first journal devoted exclusively to the international field of women’s history. It does not attempt to impose one feminist “line” but recognizes the multiple perspectives captured by the term “feminisms.” Works featured in the journal investigate the historical constructions of gender that shape and are shaped by women’s experience

The latest issue, December 2012, is a special issue entitled “Human Rights, Global Conferences, and the Making of Postwar Transnational Feminisms.” It tries to capture the struggles of feminist activism during the period after World War II. There are articles included about Media Strategies in the mid-seventies related to women, the changing role of Catholic women at UN conferences from 1975, and the Global Gender Policy in the 1990s.

The Journal of Women’s History is currently available online through Reese Library. For more information about this journal or any other in our collection, contact Melissa Johnson, Electronic Resources and Serials Librarian, at mjohns69@gru.edu or 706-667-4907.
