Abstract

The authors of this article conducted a review of selected social work journals published between 1982 and 1991 to determine the coverage given to women's issues during this period. Because this study was similar to one conducted for the previous decade, the authors were able to analyze trends over time as well as differences among various journals. The findings indicate that articles focusing on women's issues comprised less than 10% ofall articles published in the sampled journals during the decade. The study also found that women authored over 75% of the articles and books on women's content, butthatonly about 15% of the articles women write are on women's issues.
