It is FemmeNoir's ambitious hope to bring information and the ability to communicate with one another as close as your desktop. FemmeNoir serves as a portal to other sites of interest to lesbians of color. In addition, we will provide original content pertaining to our community, our loves, our lives, our music, our theater, our films, our publications, and our culture."

"Isis... fue creada en 1974, como parte del resurgimiento mundial del movimiento de mujeres y el nacimiento de un nuevo feminismo militante... la misión del grupo fundador se encaminó a documentar lo que estaba pasando en diversas partes del mundo con las luchas de las mujeres, a través de una recopilación sistemática de información que, más adelante, dio origen a un centro de documentación y a la producción de publicaciones periódicas alimentadas por la información que enviaban las organizaciones de mujeres en rápido crecimiento. Actualmente nos hemos adecuado a los nuevos escenarios marcados por el cambio de época, el surgimiento de nuevos actores y actoras sociales, las transformaciones en los ámbitos de la información y comunicación sumados a la disminución de la ayuda de la cooperación internacional...De esta manera hemos seguido potenciando el trabajo de difusión y recopilación de la información y contacto con las redes, sin apartarnos de nuestros objetivos primigenios."

The mission of the founding group decided to document what was going on in different parts of the world with the battles of women and women's rights through the systematic compilation of information, which later gave birth to a center for documentation and to the production of periodical publications fed by the information sent by fast growing women's organizations. Today we have adapted to the new sceneries marked by the changes in time, the rise of new social actors, the transformations in the information and communication cirquits, and adding this to the dimminishing international cooperation. In this way we have continued supporting the potential of diffusion and complilation of information and contact with networks without separating ourselves from our primary objectives."
