The Feminist Webring "I 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)
