Gender and Development Network: Call for contributions on ‘Fundamentalisms’

Home |  News | Gender and Development Network: Call for contributions on ‘Fundamentalisms’

In March 2017, the international journal Gender & Development will focus on Fundamentalisms. The Fundamentalisms issue examines the challenges of working on gender equality and women’s rights in contexts where extreme faith in both religious and secular doctrines threatens women’s wellbeing, choices and rights.

The Fundamentalisms issue will feature creative and positive responses to fundamentalisms, from women’s rights and feminist activists from a range of regional perspectives. We are seeking contributions which draw on first-hand experience and research of working on fundamentalisms.

Please send a paragraph outlining your proposed idea for an article for this issue, in an email (no attachments please) to as soon as possible and by 21 June 2016.

This issue will be commissioned for a deadline of 30 June 2016. Commissioned articles will need to be completed for a deadline of 30 September 2016.

G&D has an editorial policy of publishing in clear, jargon-free English, in order to be of use to the widest possible readership of policymakers, practitioners, researchers and activists. Articles should be of around 5,000 to 6,000 words maximum. Guidelines for contributors can be found at
