Al-Raida is a quarterly journal published by IWSAW. Its mission is to enhance networking between Arab women and women all over the world; to promote research on the condition of women in the Arab world, especially with respect to social change and development; and to report on the activities of IWSAW and the Lebanese American University.
Each issue of Al-Raida features a file which focuses on a particular theme, in addition to articles, conference reports, interviews, book reviews, and art news.
Hard copies of recent and back issues of Al-Raida are available in English at the Institute. Online copies of issues, 2001 onwards, are available online in English and Arabic (free of charge).
