Fall 2017 issue of IJFAB is out, with special section Remembering Anne Donchin

If you have already received your paper copy of the new Fall 2017 issue of International Journal of Feminist Approaches to Bioethics (Vol 10 Iss 2), you will have noticed a new look. You may also have noticed that the journal’s international emphasis is reinforced by the graphic, which does not center the Americas but rather Africa, Asia, and Australia.

This issue also represents the beginning of the tenure of a new editorial team of Hilde Lindemann, Jamie Lindemann Nelson, Jackie Leach Scully, Robyn Bluhm, Katy Fulfer, and Kathryn Caras.  Caras has been IJFAB’s senior managing editor since 2014 when she retired from Indiana University Press, where she had been involved with IJFAB for its first eight years. Caras is an indispensable part of the history and success of the journal.

The Contents of the issue are sufficiently interesting that I post them here in full. Note how well they represent the breadth of issues which can benefit from feminist analysis in bioethics.
