Ruralwomyn -- Online community of rural women.


About Ruralwomyn
English (USA)

Ruralwomyn is the online community behind the Rural Womyn Zone web site. We use the Internet to overcome the geographical and other barriers that prevent most of us from ever meeting face to face. It allows us to share our experiences as rural women and explore the concept of "rural women" as a group.

Topics range from all aspects of daily living to substantive issues, how they impact women, and more specifically, women in the rural U.S.

Members must currently live in a rural area and bring a rural perspective to discussions. You do not have to identify with the women's movement or with feminism in order to belong to this group. But the list assumes the validity of the women's movement and explores the gap between feminism and rural women's experiences.

The list is not open to those who have only an academic or professional interest in rural women's issues, or who have a primarily urban perspective.
