MISSION STATEMENT

Women & Environments International (WEI) is a unique Canadian magazine, which examines women's multiple relations to their environments - natural, built and social - from feminist and anti-racist perspectives. It has provided a forum for academic research and theory, professional practice and community experience since 1976. Produced by a volunteer Editorial Board, the magazine contributes to feminist social change.

WEI Magazine is proud to give a big congratulations to our board member Olga Speranskaya for receiving the Goldman Environmental Prize!
The Prize recognizes individuals for sustained and significant efforts to protect and enhance the natural environment. Scientist Olga Speranskaya successfully transformed the NGO community in Eastern Europe, the Caucasus and Central Asia (EECCA) into a potent, participatory force working to identify and eliminate the Soviet legacy of toxic chemicals in the environment.

CALL FOR VOLUNTEER LEAD EDITOR


Women & Environments International Magazine (WEI)
is seeking a volunteer lead editor to guide a publication team of six guest editors for six months (February to July 2011) and to collaborate with magazine editors in the production of our upcoming issue on the theme of Women, Environment and Labour.

The objective of this issue is to critically examine women’s labour (paid and unpaid) in the context of the environment. WEI is a magazine based at the Faculty of Environmental Studies of York University.

The magazine examines women's relations to their natural, built, and social environments from feminist and anti-racist perspectives. WEI seeks to provide both academic and community perspectives. It has been in publication since 1976. We are looking for a highly motivated and resourceful individual 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 printed product and a great place to gain new feminist perspectives.

A background in both journalism and feminist activism is desirable and a passion for women's rights and social justice is essential.

A commitment of 6 months is required. Please send a short letter of interest and CV by December 15, 2010 to: Managing Editor Women & Environments International Magazine
