As AWL readers will recall, the first issue of the journal was composed of invited papers. This issue was the first reviewed issue. The editors and publisher greatly appreciate our colleagues at the University of Southern Mississippi, Hattiesburg, MS, for providing the initial pilot for the reviews and editorial procedures for this new journal.

This issue addresses a variety of concerns of women and of society. Four of the articles target the experiences of women in leadership, two of the articles offer insights on the dilemmas facing professional women, and one article discusses the spread of HIV among Black women.
