Honorable Mentions

"Published by Africa Resource Center and directed by an all-African women team of co-editors, this new ejournal represents in part an effort to occupy and redefine the space of African Women's studies, a space initially defined by white female scholars. Judging by the inaugural issue, Jenda holds great promise, offering a large selection of interesting and engaging essays and other content, much more than comparable print or online journals."

-- Michael de Nie, Director of Scout Report, University of Wisconsin-Madison (March 3, 2001).
