Feminism and Psychology offers an intellectually and politically charged archive of historic and contemporary lines of analysis within feminism and psychology, across continents.

“On the occasion of the 40th anniversary of the Committee on Women in Psychology, we acknowledge the leadership of the editorial team of Feminism & Psychology, an international, feminist, peer-reviewed journal, for encouraging, supporting, and showcasing cutting-edge and transformative feminist theory and research. Feminism & Psychology has provided a forum for critical, radical, and provocative feminist scholarship that serves as an impetus for social change and for theoretical and methodological innovations in feminist psychology. Feminism & Psychology has contributed to the transformation of psychology, has helped to clarify the dynamics of oppression and discrimination, and has stimulated new directions in the theories, methods, and practices of feminist psychology. We salute the Editorial Boards of Feminism & Psychology, who, since the journal’s inception, have truly been leaders for women in psychology.” Joan C. Chrisler, PhD, Chair, Committee on Women in Psychology

Feminism & Psychology fosters the development of feminist theory and practice in psychology and represents the concerns of women in a wide range of contexts across the academic/applied `divide'.

Feminism & Psychology provides an international forum for debate at the interface of feminisms and psychologies.  The peer-reviewed journal's principal aim is to foster feminist theory and practice in - and beyond - psychology. We are interested in pieces that provide insights into gendered realities along multiple intersecting dimensions of difference, privilege, and inequality.  In addition to empirical work, we invite critical engagement with theories, methods of inquiry, concepts, and disciplinary and professional practice.

Feminism & Psychology encourages submissions from scholars, researchers, activists and practitioners at all stages of their careers.

Authors are encouraged to read this editorial for further information on the aims and scope of the journal.
