The Open Access journal section is part of a thematic cooperation between two scientific journals: the Open Gender Journal (Germany/Austria) and Debate Feminista (Mexico). Within the framework of this cooperation, articles on the topic are  published on an ongoing basis in both journals in German, English or Spanish and collected. The aim of this permanent special section is to bring together international research on this topic and to promote existing research in the Latin American and European context.
