Kohl Journal is a progressive, feminist journal on gender and sexuality in the Middle East, South West Asia, and North Africa. It provides a platform to promote independent knowledge produced by feminist scholars and activists in the region. The journal aims to challenge and change norms governing sex, sexuality, and gender, and to ensure that women and trans people from the region play a central role in defining, or redefining, their own realities and challenges in the areas of sexuality and gender.
