During the symposium on the stated topic, the author argues that to ask "why a feminist law journal?" is to ask "Why is feminism important? Why is feminism relevant to today's world? Why does anyone still consider it important to focus closely on the status of women and on gender issues?" A feminist law journal can serve a vital role by providing the venue for this research and discourse. This naturally includes publication space for articles on and by women of color, but it also includes constructing a feminist law journal as a space to address questions of disparate treatment and the impact such treatment has on feminist discourse and feminist strategies.
