Lynda L. Hinkle

MP feminist peer-reviewed biannual e-journal is seeking papers on the
subject of "CHOICE". The word choice has been used as a galvanizing point

choice to be a stay at home mother or have a consuming career, the choice to
 marry or not to marry, the choice to be celibate or to be sexually
promiscuous, the choice to agree or disagree with feminist "party lines",
etc. We are seeking academic papers, personal narratives, creative writing,
or journalistic writings that wrestle with the idea of gender and choice in
