The Spring 2013 inaugural issue of Women, Gender, and Families of Color has been released. The issue is a collection of articles that primarily explore various elements of health for Latinas and African American women. Women, Gender, and Families of Color is a ground-breaking scholarly journal recently launched by the University of Illinois Press in cooperation with the Department of American Studies, University of Kansas and expands the mission of the now defunct Black Women, Gender, and Families. The new title explicitly includes Black, Latina, Indigenous, and Asian American women, gender, and families. It maintains an emphasis on examinations of U.S. policies and encourages transnational comparative analyses. It more fully integrates gender as an analytic category while strengthening interdisciplinary paradigms for the study of women of color, families, and communities.
