The DYNAMICS OF GLOBAL FEMINISM issue is now available

The Columbia Journal of International Affairs is thrilled to release its Spring/Summer 2019 issue: DYNAMICS OF GLOBAL FEMINISM

The Dynamics of Global Feminism asks its contributors a series of questions. Is there one “Global Feminism,” or several? Why have some feminist movements been successful while others have failed? How have globalization, the rise of populism, and the emergence of new technologies affected both the form and substance of feminism? What have past movements gotten wrong, or right, and how can feminism contribute to building a better world?

The issue features contributions from a number of powerful voices. Nobel Peace Laureate Leymah Gbowee, former Afghan Minister for Women Sima Samar, and Pakistani rights activist Farida Shaheed, among others, share their experiences fighting for women’s causes across the globe. The issue also includes selections from prominent academics, including Naila Kabeer, Cynthia Enloe, Eugenia McGill, and Yasmine Ergas. The full list of articles can be seen in our Table of Contents.

Two former SIPA students also made it into the issue. Saumya Deva, winner of the Journal’s inaugural Student Art Contest, and Jasneet Hora, winner of the biannual Andrew Wellington Cordier Student Essay Contest, both made powerful student contributions to Dynamics of Global Feminism.  

Readers can find individual essays online and on JSTOR.
