Call for Critical Reviews

Feminist Spaces, a publication sponsored by The University of West Florida’s Women’s Studies Collective, is seeking reviews of various textual modes in its next issue, to be released June 2017. These reviews may address books, films, musical numbers, etc., that address women’s studies, investigate a critical issue surrounding feminism, or demonstrate the pervasiveness of oppressive ideology within social, political, or cultural spheres.
