Welcome to The Journal of Latina Critical Feminism

About Us

It started ten years ago with an idea and a passion. Dr. Jorge Valadez saw the need for a peer reviewed, Latina, feminist journal, but never quite found the right people to help him put it together. Come the spring of 2016, he saw the enthusiasm and eagerness from some students in his philosophy of social justice class as opportunities to make this idea come to fruition. With his support and organization between students, faculty and other acclaimed philosophers across the country, we have formed the Journal for Latina Feminism.

Please support our journal. We need financial support for start-up marketing, promotional items, operations, and maintaining the website.

Our Philosophy

The journal will provide 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 will be an online, open access, blind peer-reviewed academic journal that will include narrative and poetic entries as legitimate forms of scholarly feminist analyses.
The basic normative commitment of the journal is to expand the analysis of the ways gender relates to social justice in its multiple forms, including a critical examination of intersectionality, the role that men and women play in oppressing animals and the earth, and the complex connections between minority cultures and the oppression of women.
We particularly encourage submissions that draw from our indigenous values, norms, and perspectives to articulate views of sociopolitical, economic, and natural environments that promote the mutual well-being of human and nonhuman species.
The journal wants to explore the social justice implications of different forms of gender and sexual identification, including gay, lesbian, transgender, pansexual, bisexual, and other forms of sexual identity.
The journal welcomes articles that discuss ways in which feminist struggles can be systematically integrated with broader social justice issues. In particular, we believe that to achieve its true potential as a revolutionary transformational force it is important for feminism to support a planetary ethic that expresses moral concern for all inhabitants of the earth community, understood in intergenerational terms.
We construe feminism broadly to include gender analyses that examine the ways men, particularly minority men, can be oppressed by patriarchy.
Articles should as far as possible use language that is understandable and accessible to wide audiences and avoid obscurantist and convoluted terminology that conveys a false sense of profundity. Also, the journal will include poetry, experiential narrative accounts, and other forms of creative expression.
Perhaps most of all, the journal will strive 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 fully embraced and implemented.
