SAFERE: Southern African Feminist Review
The Journal SAFERE is an established academic journal within Southern Africa and on the continent, with growing subscriptions from abroad. It is published bi-annually by the Southern African Institute for Policy Studies (SARIPS) of the SAPES Trust. SAFERE provides women with a writing platform which is feminist in content and orientation, as well as facilitating for African women to express their ideas and interests through a medium which is supportive and encouraging of feminist opinions and positions. The Journal is one of barely a handful of feminist journals coming out of Africa, and through careful editing and the collection of high quality written work, it has established itself as a journal of world standing from the time it was first published in 1995. Future issues of SAFERE will reflect either a specific theme or will remain open and `eclectic' in order to accommodate the multiplicity of issues that women scholars and activists are writing about throughout the region and at a continental level. SAFERE has become an important forum for the expression of feminist views on issues, which reflect a movement beyond the notion of gender equality as it was expressed in the early stages of the Gender program. It provides a good indicator of the directions which the SARIPS Gender program is currently taking at the beginning of the 2000 century.
