Focus and Scope

Al-Raida, The Pioneer, is a bi-annual interdisciplinary semi peer-reviewed journal published by the Institute for Women’s Studies in the Arab World (IWSAW) at the Lebanese American University (LAU) in Lebanon.

The Institute strengthens research on and by women in the Arab world at national, regional, and international levels and provides much-needed Arab perspectives to global discourses on Arab women and gender equality in the region. Al-Raida is the Institute’s signature journal, in publication since May 1976.

Al-Raida’s mission is to give voice to Arab women through enhancing understanding between Arab women and women worldwide, highlighting scholarship on and by Arab women, promoting research on Arab women’s issues, and serving as a platform for young voices and activists in the Arab world.

Al-Raida is a space for researchers, policy-makers, practitioners and students to address gender equality and women’s issues in the Arab world. The publication sheds light on the lived experiences of women in the Arab world by promoting scholarship on and by Arab women. As such, it also contributes to strengthening connections between Arab women’s movements and women’s movements worldwide.

Al-Raida welcomes submissions not only from academics and researchers but also from activists and practitioners. Al-Raida publishes scholarly articles that undergo a double-blind peer-reviewing process, as well as creative pieces, reflections by activists, viewpoints, interviews, short stories, poems, photographic essays, conference reports, as well as reviews on topics across a wide range of disciplines.
