Hawwa publishes articles from all disciplinary and comparative perspectives that concern women and gender issues in the Middle East and the Islamic world. These include Muslim and non-Muslim communities within the greater Middle East, and Muslim and Middle-Eastern communities elsewhere in the world. Articles dealing with men, masculinity, children and the family, or other issues of gender shall also be considered. The journal strives to include significant studies of theory and methodology as well as topical matter. Approximately one third of the submissions focus on the pre-modern era, with the majority of articles on the contemporary age. The journal features several full-length articles and current book reviews.
The majority of Hawwa's articles are in English. However, articles submitted in French will also be considered. The Hawwa is an international peer-reviewed journal.
