AFFILIA: Journal of Women and Social Work is the only scholarly social work journal to address the concerns of social workers and their clients from a feminist point of view, offering a unique mix of research reports, new theory and creative approaches to the challenges confronting women. Whether you're involved in social work research, practice, education or administration, you'll appreciate broad range of scholarship and informed feminist point of view.

Broad-Ranging Feminist Scholarship

Each issue brings you a wealth of knowledge and insights through research reports, empirical articles, commentaries, opinions and book reviews. Also featured are news updates, fiction and poetry - all sympathetic to the female experience.

Diverse Subjects

AFFILIA includes articles exploring such diverse subjects as abortion, pornography, sexual harassment, job discrimination, aging and the psychosocial empowerment of women. Ongoing topics of interest include:

  • The nature of female-male alliances for dealing with gender oppression in social work contexts
  • Psychosocial development and gender: Are women more peace-loving than men?
  • What will/should "feminism" look like in the 21st Century?
  • The application of formal theory to feminist perspectives in social work practice: How to make a stronger case for generalizing feminist analyses to varieties of context
