In the age of post-feminism when many are trying to argue that feminism is no longer needed because women have reached equality through the introduction of legislation and entry of women to all professions, the reality shows a different story: the societies are still based on patriarchal values. The questions the conference addresses are how far have we got, and what needs to be done to achieve true equality of both men and women, and a society where there are no expected roles?

Papers are invited (but not limited to) for 17 panels. Prospective participants are also welcome to submit proposals for their own panels. Both researchers and practitioners are welcome to submit paper proposals. Submissions of abstracts (up to 500 words) with an email contact should be sent to Dr Martina Topić ( by October 15, 2019. Decisions will be sent by November 1. In case enough abstracts are collected earlier, decisions will be sent earlier.

The 6th International Conference on Women’s Studies: How Far Have We Got? will take place in Leeds, UK, on
Janury 18, 2020. Registrations are due by December 15, 2019.
