It aims to contribute to the development, visibility and legitimation of the knowledge produced by Women’s, Feminist and Gender Studies.

Given its assumed purpose of "contributing to changing discriminatory and stereotyped practices and representations on the basis of sex or identities" (Editorial of issue n.º 16 reiterating editorial principles expressed in issue n.º 1), ex aequo publishes articles that include a theoretical reflection and contribute "the problematization of the main issues that affect social relations between women and men in society" (ibidem). Articles must be original, written in Portuguese, Spanish, French or English and adopt a non-discriminatory, inclusive language and promoter of equality. Publication in ex aequo is free of charge for authors (there is no article processing charge or publication fee).
