About the Journal

Debate Feminista is a Mexican journal founded in 1990 by doctor Marta Lamas. During its first period, spanning 25 years, 50 volumes were published on a number of topics pertaining to gender and sexuality from the perspective of various disciplinary approaches in the social sciences and humanities (anthropology, sociology, psychology and psychoanalysis, political science, economics, law, history, philosophy, literature, and visual arts).

From 2016 onwards, Debate Feminista came under the fold of the National Autonomous University of Mexico, and has been published by the Center for Research and Studies on Gender ever since as a peer-reviewed academic journal, observing the university publications’ guidelines. It appears twice a year in both printed and electronic formats.
