PEDRO, Joana Maria. Feminist militancy and the academy: survival and voluntary work.Translated byJeffrey Hoff. Estud. fem. [online]. 2008, vol.4Selected edition, pp. 0-0. ISSN 0104-026X.
The survival of an academic magazine in Brazil depends on assistance from financial agencies, institutional support and lots of work for editors, which does not always correspond to the prestige that occupying this function signifies. The Revista Estudos Feministas, because it is both academic and activist, has had support from a considerable amount of voluntary work of a number of people. This article discusses the journals efforts to survive, the difficulties that it faces because it is seen by many as a militant vehicle and the support from volunteers that it receives precisely for this reason.
