This paper presents the unique story of Pakistan’s pioneering journal of Women’s Studies «Pakistan Journal of Women’s Studies: Alam-e-Niswan» («PJWS»), and provides testimony to the dedication, commitment and resolution of a small group of scholars of Women’s Studies at the University of Karachi, who stood together to promote and generate feminist scholarship. «PJWS» first appeared in 1994 and since then it has attempted to act as a bridge between academics and activists, to produce interdisciplinary scholarship and to dialogue with similar journals worldwide. Despite several challenges that thwarted its life, the story of the twenty-five years of «PJWS» is a story of success.
