created this webring for many different reasons. I feel that the word
"feminist" has many negative connotations, and that the
fear many people have of identifying as "feminist" (...)
is one of the reasons for a lack of unity among people who believe
in women's rights.(...) I wanted a diverse webring - one that gathered
many, many types of people, including but not limited to boot stomping
lesbians, professional women, wives, mothers, homemakers, and... *gasp*....
men! I wanted any web surfer who came upon this webring to be able
to see a varied group of people who might have nothing in common with
each other except for their identification as feminist.I believe that
every person who identifies as a feminist is taking a stand for women's
rights. The act of saying "I Am A Feminist" is, in itself,
a feminist act. Through this webring, people from the Bikini Kill
fans to the homemakers can exercise their feminist voices." (Jess) http://www.jessworks.org/

Men are welcome here, but women take the primary role in shaping the
community. A pro-diversity environment. Women and men of all ages,
races, religions, sexual orientations, and physical appearances are
welcome. A sex-positive environment. Sexuality is an important part
of being human and is discussed openly. There is no shame in feeling
sexual or having nontraditional desires and interests. A community-driven
environment. Forum members have a strong voice in how the site is
run. A business. You can make money without compromising your deeply
held beliefs." (Ayesha and Tanith)
