Feminist Review (Journal)


Feminist Review is a peer reviewed, interdisciplinary journal setting new agendas for feminism. Feminist Review invites critical reflection on the relationship between materiality and representation, theory and practice, subjectivity and communities, contemporary and historical formations. The FR Collective is committed to exploring gender in its multiple forms and interrelationships.

Feminist Review resists the increasing instrumentalisation of scholarship within British and international higher education and thus supports the generation of creative and innovative approaches to knowledge production. As well as academic articles we publish experimental pieces, visual and textual media and political interventions, including, for example, interviews, short stories, poems and photographic essays.

When Feminist Review first appeared in 1979 it described itself as a socialist and feminist journal, ‘a vehicle to unite research and theory with political practice, and contribute to the development of both’. Challenges of race, class and sexuality have been central to the development of the journal. Thirty years later, FR remains committed to these core values.

"New journal which aims to provide a bridge between the WLM and women's studies. Concerned with issues such as women and social control, sexuality, women's art, feminist criticism, and Third world women. First issue: Jan '79".
