This decision is a racial and gender justice issue and stands to impact all, especially those who are BIPOC women, trans, non-binary, and low income. We’ll be joined by a panel of experts and advocates who will discuss the impact of the decision, challenges individuals and communities may face as a result, and the ways in which we can empower them as we move forward.

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: From the ReVisionist by the Women’s History M.A. Program at Sarah Lawrence College The ReVisionist is an online publication platform, run by Women’s History graduate students at Sarah Lawrence College, which actively seeks to publish interdisciplinary work from around the world. Each month, the editorial team selects a theme through which publications may tie together. We publish everything from poetry to research to video content, as well as promote the authors we work with on our social media pages.Our website features writing publications, such as Rachael Nuckles’ “The Revolution Will Be Dramatized,” as well as non-written submissions, such as Mi’Shaye Venerable’s video on being a “Black, Queer, Woman Activist and Community Organizer.” Written submissions can range from 500 to 1000 words, although this is flexible as well. Founded by Gerda Lerner as the first Women’s History M.A. program in the United States in 1972, our scholars continuously work to build a more intersectional and interdisciplinary understanding of women’s history. The ReVisionist aims to provide young scholars, activists, creatives, and visionaries with a platform on which to share their knowledge and voices, as well as engage in professional development.Our theme for November is “Whose land are you voting on?,” aimed at acknowledging Indigenous Heritage Month and opening a space for engaging with the 2020 Presidential Election. Submissions are accepted on a rolling basis throughout the month. You can find our submission guidelines and tips on this short page. We also highly recommend viewing a few articles on our website to familiarize yourself with our content. Please send all inquiries and submissions to [email protected]
