Women's Review of Books

A classic journal in the field of gender studies, the Women's Review of Books began publication in 1983 with an eye towards bringing together the much ignored but growing body of scholarship and creative writing by and about women.  After a brief hiatus in early 2005 it continues to be published by the Wellesley Centers for Women at Wellesley College and Old City Publishing in PA.

It can be accessed through JSTOR for the years 1983-2007 and from Old City from 2006-present.
