New Feminist Solutions: Social Justice Approaches to Ending Domestic Violence

Tiloma Jayasinghe, Sally MacNichol, Angela Moreno

Between 2011-2012, Sakhi for
 South Asian Women convened two meetings of grassroots organizers

Life (Un)Ltd: Feminism, Bioscience, Race

Rachel C. Lee

Like the symposium, this special issue foregrounds scholarship at the intersections of science and technology studies, feminist and queer studies, and race and postcolonial studies. The authors explore key questions emerging from the intensive biotechnological management of life that marks our age. Exploring the ways in which certain bodies and lands become, as they have for many centuries, the extractable material for scientific “discovery,” the authors make questions of gender, sexuality, and reproduction central to their queries.

A New Queer Agenda

Joseph N. DeFilippis, Lisa Duggan, Kenyon Farrow, and Richard Kim

With this issue of The Scholar & Feminist Online, the Barnard Center for Research on Women celebrates our ongoing collaboration with Queers for Economic Justice. Through this partnership, we have been engaging activists, academics and organizers around a vision and practice of cross-issue organizing that sees gender and sex as central to issues like immigration, poverty, homelessness, gentrification, and drug use. “A New Queer Agenda” pushes beyond the vision of security and belonging offered through gay marriage to a broader politics of economic, political and sexual justice for all.

Reproductive Justice in Action

Rebecca Jordan-Young, Lucy Trainor, Janet Jakobsen

Reproductive justice is an inclusive framework for thinking about reproductive freedoms, holistic well-being and comprehensive justice. Organizing for reproductive justice encompasses a multiplicity of issues; the individuals and networks working in this model are just as diverse in their missions, constituencies, and methods of action. Reproductive Justice in Action is the result of a collaboration between the Barnard Center for Research on Women, Groundswell's Catalyst Fund, the New York Women's Foundation and seventeen of their grantee partners doing reproductive justice work in New York City. Seeking to explore the ways in which these seventeen organizations think about their mission and work, we jointly embarked on a participatory action research project in order to better understand how the organizations relate to (or feel limited by) the model and language of reproductive justice.
