Read On! feminists@law

(Delighted to welcome back alumna Máiréad Enright, who contributes this guest post)

feminists@law is a new, peer-reviewed, online, open-access journal of feminist legal scholarship. It has just been launched at Kent Law School, England, and is open for submissions. You can access the journal here.
The journal, which has an international reach, will feature critical, interdisciplinary, theoretically engaged scholarship that extends feminist debates and analyses relating to law and justice (broadly conceived).
The first issue gives a fantastic taste of what is to come. It features:
► An article on the association between feminist and open access movements by Professor Carys J. Craig of Osgoode Hall Law School at York University, York Ph.D. student Joseph F. Turcotte, and York Communications Studies expect Rosemary J. Coombe;
► Reflections by Rutgers Political Science, Women's Studies and Comparative Literature Professor Drucilla Cornell on the 20th anniversary of the publication of her book Beyond Accommodation;
► A piece on CEDAW, the Women's Convention, by Alda Facio, a founder of the Women’s Caucus for Gender Justice in the International Criminal Court;
► An article on Latin America by Dr. Breny Mendoza, Associate Professor of Gender and Women's Studies at California State University, Northridge;
► Thoughts on current and future agendas for feminist legal studies, presented by, among others, IntLawGrrls alumna Doris Buss (left) (photo credit) (article here);
Videos of a roundtable discussion on the ‘past’, ‘present’ and ‘future’ of feminist legal scholarship.
All will be of interest to IntLawGrrls' readers.
