Multimedia Encyclopedia of Women in Today’s World


“We are inviting academic editorial contributors to the Multimedia Encyclopedia of Women in Today’s World, a new online library reference that will look at women today around the world and delve into the contexts of being female in the 21st century. Thus the scope of the encyclopedia will focus on women’s status starting in approximately 2000 and look forward.

The new work will supplement the 4-volume print and online edition of the encyclopedia recently published. The 250 signed entries (with cross-references and recommended readings) will cover issues in contemporary women’s and gender studies and the articles will include information relevant to the following academic disciplinary contexts:
women in different cultures/countries; arts and media; business and economics; criminal justice; education; family studies; health; media; military; politics; science and technology; sports; environmental studies; and religion.

This comprehensive project is being published in stages by SAGE Reference and will be marketed to academic and public libraries as a digital product available to students via the library’s electronic services. The General Editors, who will be reviewing each submission to the project, are Dr.
Mary Zeiss Stange of Skidmore College, and Dr. Carol K. Oyster of the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse.

SAGE Publications offers an honorarium ranging from SAGE book credits for smaller articles up to a free set of the printed product or access to the online product for contributions totaling 10,000 words or more.

We are making final assignments that are due June 10, 2011. The following articles are available for contribution:
