This issue of Global Discourse is the product of a multidisciplinary scholarly collaboration focused on questions related to gender, sexuality, and the law. As editors, we sought to foster a scholarly collaboration that integrated principles of gender equity into the process of developing this issue. This collaboration began with a workshop held at Drake University during October 2018. We invited scholars representing multiple disciplines from different global regions. Contributing scholars also are at different stages in their academic career. We are pleased that our efforts to diversify contributing scholars has helped produce a special issue with a rich set of contributions, though we acknowledge that the special issue would offer an even more valuable perspective had we succeeded in recruiting an even more diverse set of contributing scholars from a broader range of disciplinary backgrounds and geographic regions. Much work remains to be done to ensure broad, inclusive scholarly discussions about gender, sexuality, and the law.
