Women's Studies Quarterly (WSQ) is a peer-reviewed academic journal of women's studies that was established in 1972. It is published by biannually The Feminist Press at the CUNY Graduate Center. Following Feminist Studies and founded only two months later, WSQ is the oldest continuing women's studies journal.

Along with scholarly articles, the journal publishes fiction and creative nonfiction, poetry, and the visual arts. "Alerts and Provocations" informs readers about immediate political crises affecting women. "Classics Revisited" rereads a major text of women's studies, with a response by the original author. Book reviews and essays inform readers about recent work in the field.

The editors are Victoria Pitts-Taylor and Talia Schaffer (Queens College, City University of New York). The previous editors are Cindi Katz and Nancy K. Miller. In 2007, WSQ obtained the The Council of Editors of Learned Journals (CELJ) 2007 Phoenix Award for Significant Editorial Achievement.[1]


The magazine was originally called Women's Studies Newsletter, it changed to its current name in 1981.[2]
