E ngā mana, e ngā reo, e ngā karangatanga maha, tēnā koutou katoa.

Welcome to the latest edition of Women Talking Politics, where we continue to push boundaries and amplify voices at the forefront of feminist discourse. This is in a context where women continue to be affected disproportionately in terms of abuse, war violence and the effects of climate change and yet struggle to have a seat at the decision-making table. Nowhere is this more obvious than in Gaza where the death toll has now past 27,000 and two million people are facing starvation, continuous bombing, and a lack of political will for an immediate ceasefire. In this issue, we've curated a dynamic collection of articles, poems, and perspectives that delve deep into the intersection of feminism, climate change and human rights.

Our commitment to inclusivity shines through as we feature a diverse array of voices from various disciplines, each offering unique insights into the complexities of gender dynamics. From exploring the nuances of race, culture, and class to confronting issues of violence and sexuality, our contributors fearlessly tackle pressing issues facing women today. By actively working to address these issues, we can create a more equitable and inclusive society where the contributions of women and gender scholars and activists are valued and celebrated. In a world reshaped by the pandemic, we've embraced remote collaboration, innovation, transcending geographical barriers to bring you this journal from four separate locations across continents. This innovative approach not only underscores our adaptability but also highlights the power of connectivity in driving meaningful dialogue and collaboration. As editors, we take pride in curating content that challenges the status quo and sparks critical conversations. We invite you to engage with our thought-provoking articles and poems, knowing that your perspectives contribute to the rich tapestry of feminist discourse. At Women Talking Politics, we're more than just a journal—we're a community dedicated to empowering scholars, activists, and students alike. Join us in our mission to elevate voices, bridge gaps, add depth and richness to the discourse. We particularly welcome contributions by early career researchers and from underrepresented groups.

Thank you for being part of this journey.
