Review of Women’s Studies Special Issue (Volume XXIX)
Veronica Gregorio (National University of Singapore)
Cleve Arguelles (Australian National University)
the special issue
of populist forces has brought with it a particularly gendered rhetoric that
invokes patriarchal norms that attacks women and other gender minorities. This
manifests worldwide but most especially in the global south. In the
Philippines, Rodrigo Duterte’s assumption to the presidency is coupled with frequent
articulation of misogynistic and sexist discourses in public. In Hungary and
Poland, populist parties in power have continuously attempted publicly denounce
the “gender ideology”. In many places, populism has rolled back progress on
gender rights and issues although women and feminist groups like #BabaeAko did
not take all of it sitting down. This special issue of the Review of Women’s Studies on gender and populism seeks to understand
how women and the LGBTQ+ communities are faring in populist times. Although
populism studies have recently picked up, the relationship between gender and
populism remain understudied. As such, the aim of the special issue is to
analyze how gendered populism and populist politics challenge and/or reinforce hegemonic
gender norms. Since most scholarly research on gender and populism focuses on
North America and Western Europe, studies that relate to cases from the global
south are especially welcome. This special issue accepts scholarly articles and
forms of creative work that can be printed from academics, activists,
journalists, advocates, and all those whose works relate to the theme. In
particular, those who are working on the following topics are especially
invited to contribute:
What forms of resistance to populism are emerging? How are
women’s and other gender movements tackling the populist challenge?
What can gender theories contribute to analyzing and
responding to populism? How is this meaningful to research and activism in
diverse global south contexts?
How are gender norms invoked in populist campaigns and
mobilizations? How is the trend of gendered populist rhetoric manifest across
the global south?
How can we explain women and other gender minorities who
embrace, instead of reject, populist rule? What lessons can be drawn from the
female and LGBTQ+ populist publics?
About the journal
The Review of Women’s Studies is a refereed
journal published twice a year by the UP Center for Women’s and Gender Studies,

seeks to publish research that employ feminist methodologies and that adhere to
the principles of feminist research, bearing in mind the intersectionality of
gender, class, religion, age, and education.
The RWS also features interviews of women
