Call for Volunteer Lead Editors

Women & Environments International Magazine (WEI) is seeking volunteer lead editors to assemble and collaborate on the production of upcoming issues on topics related to women and environments.

The magazine examines women's relationships to natural, built, and social environments from intersectional feminist and anti-racist perspectives. WEI seeks to provide both academic and community viewpoints, for a general readership. We are looking for highly motivated and resourceful editors with excellent research and writing skills.

This is a great opportunity to learn how the editorial side of a non-profit magazine operates, from the inception of an idea to the final product, and a great way to gain new feminist perspectives and contacts. A background in both journalism and feminist activism is desirable and a passion for women's rights and global justice is essential.

A part-time commitment of roughly 6 months is required. Please send a short letter of interest and CV, along with your proposal for a special issue topic and its core contents, to:

Women & Environments International Magazine
HNES Building, Room 234
Faculty of Environmental Studies
York University
Toronto, Ontario
Canada M3J 1P3

or email us at: (please put "Application for Lead Editor" as the email subject)

We strongly encourage applications from individuals who reflect the broad diversity of communities we work with, including women of colour and indigenous women.

Send submission(s) electronically to using "Gender and Social Movements" as your subject heading. Please refer to the Editorial guidelines attached (or see our website) for word limits, formatting and style.

General Information: WEI is a magazine that examines women's relations to their natural, built, and social environments from feminist and anti-racist perspectives. It has provided a forum for academic research and theory, professional practice and community experience since 1976. Like most scholarly publications, WEI does not pay for contributions but retains a high-quality wide readership so your contribution will reach a wide audience. Upon publication, WEI assumes a non-exclusive, worldwide, and perpetual right to publish and reproduce contributions in any format in and outside the magazine context. This does not preclude contributors from granting permission to publish their materials after publication in WEI provided WEI is acknowledged as the original publisher.
