Feminist Philosophy Quarterly (FPQ) is an online, open access, peer-reviewed journal dedicated to promoting feminist philosophical scholarship. We welcome submissions from all areas and traditions of feminist philosophy, and our goal is to be a platform for philosophical research that engages the problems of our time in the broader world.
As an open-access journal, our goal is to make feminist philosophical scholarship of the highest quality widely available, and so we are free to authors and to readers. We also aim to improve the presence and impact of women and feminist philosophers. We take considerations of implicit bias seriously, and employ the best practices of the profession, including triple-anonymous review.
We believe that all areas of feminist philosophical practice can contribute to social change, assisting those who strive for greater justice and equity and work against oppression in all forms. We endeavour to ally ourselves with others who are making such contributions.

It’s free, as it always should be!
