Until recently, The Feminist Wire—a pro-feminism, social justice publishing company—has exclusively shared content (from poetry and novels to political articles) online. Now, they're partnering up with the University of Arizona Press for a new book series that'll showcase critiques on anti-feminist representations in U.S. popular culture, media and politics. 

The UA Department of Gender and  Women's Studies plans to incorporate the book series into the classroom. The department is actually collaborating with the School of Journalism in developing an online master's program in social justice publishing, where students will learn about acquiring, editing, producing and marketing books, a press release from UA Press says.

"Activism. Policy work. Writing. The work that I do has always been about connecting to academic and nonacademic audiences," says Monica Casper, professor in the Department of Gender and  Women's Studies and managing editor of The Feminist Wire, in a press release. "This partnership is just a logical extension of that. We are reaching across the university/public life divide."

There is going to be a celebration for the launch of this new project on Friday,  Sept. 11 at noon at the UA Libraries Special Collections, 1510 E. University Blvd. Casper, co-founder of The Feminist Wire Tamura Lomax and Darnell Moore, senior editor at Mic will be among the speakers.
