Kohl is a progressive, feminist journal on gender and sexuality in the Middle East, South West Asia, and North Africa regions. Kohl believes that much of what is available on gender and sexuality in these regions is burdened by Orientalist misconceptions. The journal aims to provide a non-exoticising platform to promote independent knowledge produced by young feminist scholars and activists. The journal works to change the norms governing sex, sexuality and gender and ensure that women, girls and trans people from the region play a central role in defining and redefining their realities and challenges when it comes to feminism, sexuality and gender.
