FSR Blog (Blog) Submission Policy
NOTICE TO PROSPECTIVE CONTRIBUTORS
The FSR Blog (Blog) welcomes contributions that focus on the intersection of feminism and religion in response to current issues and events. We understand feminism intersectionally to include all the diverse voices raised to counter oppression and articulate the well being of all people, all women, and all who struggle against injustice and oppression around the globe.
Reviewers are asked to evaluate submissions not only on the basis of their stylistic fit but also on their contribution to feminist discourses, their acquaintance with significant issues in the women’s movement, and their vision of social and/or religious change. Writing that is in any way sexist, racist, homophobic, or otherwise discriminatory will not be accepted.
We welcome and encourage authors to move away from gender and sex binary-enforcing language in their work. This includes the use of a singular ‘they’ pronoun, expanding upon the traditional ‘she or he’ framework.
Blog posts submitted should not be under consideration elsewhere. They should include a title, be around 800 words, use hyperlinks for citations, and when possible and relevant, incorporate photo, video, etc. (N.B. All visual media must have a reference and/or hyperlink to the original source). We do not accept traditional book reviews; review or analysis of a book must be done in light of current scholarship and events that connect the contribution to the purpose statement of the FSR Blog. All blog posts appropriate for the FSR Blog will be sent out anonymously to at least two reviewers, upon whose judgment the editors heavily rely.
All authors retain their own copyrights for their written works. We welcome and encourage authors and readers to copy, reference or quote from the content of their blog postings, so long as reprints include both author and website attribution.
