** Call for Paper for 2022 Special Issue - Inclusive Society and the Future of Women's Labor

Asian Women would like to cordially invite papers dealing with the academic issues related to Vulnerability in Women’s Labor for the Special Issue of 2022.

About the Journal Asian Women is an interdisciplinary and cross-cultural journal, which is published in English by the Research Institute of Asian Women at Sookmyung Women's University, Korea. It has been published quarterly: in March, June, September, and December. It is indexed and abstracted in the Social Science Citation (SSCI), SCOPUS, and the Korea Citation Index (KCI).

2022 Special Issue Theme COVID-19 has changed the lifestyles and thinking paradigms of members around the world, and this change has exposed and deepened inequality and vulnerability in our society. In particular, the women’s employment and labor sectors have faced a serious crisis. Amid the global social transition currently taking place, the pursuit of qualitative rather than quantitative growth, and the creation of a society of coexistence rather than exclusion and monopoly remains a priority. To this end, and to repair the damage disasters have caused to women and mitigate gender inequality, the need for gender-sensitive policies is clear.

This special issue aims to raise interest in the vulnerability of women’s labor by re-examining the issue from new perspectives that deviate from previous studies, thereby providing a platform of academic communications to explore future development and countermeasures through discussion. We would welcome any theoretical or empirical research with a feminist perspective related to the topics below
