Call for Submissions: The Voice (The Journal of the Battered Women’s Movement)

Post date: 07 June 2011
Deadline: 20 June 2011

NCADV is currently calling for submissions to The Voice and is open to a variety of topics including, but not limited to: elder abus3, power and control within shelter programs, child custody and domestic vi0lence, child witnessing, incarc3rated batt3red women, human trafficking, men’s role in ending vi0lence, domestic vi0lence within marginalized communities, teens and youth, mental health and domestic vi0lence and many other topics.

All articles should include strategies for social change, should be solution-based and should offer tangible suggestions and examples aimed at ending vi0lence.

The Voice serves to challenge stereotypes of vi0lence, the systems and prejudices that contribute to vi0lence, and presents distinctive, innovative, and tangible ways to end it. Please consider submitting your original, thought-provoking, innovative and challenging article. The Voice is movement-driven; therefore, we print original articles from a variety of sources. Articles are screened for their uniqueness, poignancy and perspective. Grassroots advocates, survivors and individuals from traditionally marginalized groups are encouraged to submit articles. Articles can be position papers, research, political or philosophical analyses, essays, discussion papers or critical analyses. Case studies, personal narratives, poetry and short works of fiction may also be submitted for consideration.

Anonymous submissions are welcome.

NCADV reserves the right to edit all articles and bios for grammar, length, readability and content (unless otherwise requested). Articles will not be returned to the authors. Submission to The Voice does not guarantee inclusion. Printing of information does not necessarily mean that NCADV aligns itself or supports the opinions purported in submitted articles and takes no responsibility for the comments of the writers.
