Journal of Tibetan Women's Studies
Yumtsho 3
Yumtsho 2
Yumtsho 1

  This journal on Tibetan Women's Studies is the first of its kind in dealing with the issues relating to of Tibetan women in a scholarly manner. The name Yumtsho means "Turquoise Lake". In Tibetan geographical and geomancic symbology the lake is generally identified with the female. Though the journal itself is in Tibetan, the table of contents is also provided in English. In spite of its somewhat academic nature this journal has been warmly received by Tibetan women who turned out in large numbers for the launch of the first issue and also attended subsequent sales events and lectures on the journal in large numbers and purchased many copies.
