The journal provides a voice for the articulation of feminist and social justice concerns from a Latina perspective, broadly construed to include Latinas in the U.S., Latin America, and other countries. The journal is an online, open access, peer-reviewed academic journal that considers narrative and poetic entries as legitimate forms of scholarly feminist analyses. We particularly welcome proposals for creating social orders in which both women and men can equally and autonomously promote a planetary ethic that expresses moral concern for all inhabitants of the earth community. Perhaps most of all, the journal strives to exemplify the highest standards of intellectual and moral integrity and fairness. We believe that the true potential of feminism will never be realized unless these ideals are embraced and implemented.
