Canadian Woman Studies/les cahiers de la femme (CWS/cf), is a feminist academic journal which publishes up-to-date, immediate, and accessible theme-based issues on a very wide range of global issues and their impact on the lives of women in Canada and around the world. These issues are invaluable resources not only for courses in women’s studies, environmental studies, sociology, and humanities at the university and college level, but also for equality-seeking organizations that advocate on behalf of all women in Canada and policy-makers, legislators, community activists, educators and researchers working in the area of public policy reform.

CWS/cf has a high level of exposure within academic and activist communities in Canada and has a respected and well-known reputation internationally. Our circulation for each issue is approximately 3,000, while holding a readership including library patrons, of approximately 10,000. A recent reader survey indicates that our readers keep the journal on their bookshelves for many many years and refer back to them time and again. In addition, the Journal is widely used as a basic course text for university and college courses across the country. Advertisements in CWS/cf issues thus continue to have exposure for years to come.
