Women's Studies Quarterly, often referred to as WSQ, is a biannual peer-reviewed academic journal of women's studies that was established in 1972 and published by The Feminist Press.

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-in-chief are Cynthia Chris and Matt Brim (College of Staten Island). Previous editors are Victoria Pitts-Taylor and Talia Schaffer (Queens College), Cindi Katz and Nancy K. Miller. In 2007, WSQ obtained the 2007 Phoenix Award for Significant Editorial Achievement of The Council of Editors of Learned Journals.[1]


The journal was established in 1972 as the Women's Studies Newsletter, obtaining its current name in 1981.[2]
