The magazine was born in 1995 from the initiative of feminist students who aimed at sharing their research and creating an affinity group. In fact, it started when two students pursuing Bachelor degree in Literary Studies elaborated the first issue in 1995, whose theme was ‘’The Anti-Feminist Wave’’. Twenty-one issues of the journal have since been published, all available online.
For twenty-three years now, the journal has been run by voluntary and self-directed editorial collectives, and supported by the Institute for Research in Women’s Studies (IREF) at the Université du Québec à Montréal. Over the years, FéminÉtudes has built a reputation and legitimacy in the field of feminist research.
This platform is part of the Axis 1 "Strengthening the capacities of equality actors" of the Priority Solidarity Fund "Women for the future in the Mediterranean" funded by the French Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs and led by the European Institute of the Mediterranean, in the framework of the project “Developing Women's Empowerment” labelled by the Union for the Mediterranean.
