We want to promote an international debate on the subject, and create a channel of communication between science and media, between scholarly production and NGOs activities, and between positive and religious thought and/or ethical thought. We want to publicize the scholarly study of women in terms of human rights. Women Studies, and particularly "Third World" Women Studies, means to be involved in ethical and social issues. Areas of study: India, Nepal, Tibet, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Burma, Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia, Taiwan, Maldives, Malaysia, Indonesia, Philippines. The journal includes unpublished articles, abstracts, reviews, and news (such as on published books, on papers, conferences, meetings, events, Ph.D. projects, etc.)."
