Welcome to WWWomen!

Imagine this...

You have just gotten onto the World-Wide Web. You are a painter and are interested in learning more about women artists. You go to your favorite search site and put in the key words, "women artists." A list of sites come up but somehow you have a vague suspicion that not everything is there. Is there a place where people focus only on finding sites that primarily focus on women?

Enter WWWomen, the most inclusive, up-to-date search site for women's topics. Searching WWWomen, you can be assured that our team of online surfers (who can verify links as valid and relevant) have compiled the most comprehensive list possible.

WWWomen fills a need for anyone who is looking for topics relating to women. We are dedicated to finding all sites on the Web relevant to women-- from sites about child rearing and pregnancy to sites about civil liberties, careers and religion. Supportive of women and their interests, WWWomen offers no political, religious or philosophical agenda and hopes to attract women of all attitudes and persuasions.

While other search engines do contain sites relating to women- many collected automatically by search robots, we feel it takes a dedicated and constant effort to obtain, qualify, maintain and organize this area. WWWomen will get you to women's related topics faster than any other site. WWWomen has already sorted through all of the irrelevant and invalid links for you so that you obtain the fastest and most relevant searches possible.

Remember, if it's a women's related topic, WWWomen is the place to search.

Features of WWWomen

  • Browse Categories of the Largest Female Database

WWWomen was able to take its extensive database of verified sites and develop categories based upon the existing content for women on the web. We invite you to click on any of our categories to get a feel for the kind of links we've made available to you. We will develop new categories as content grows in new areas.

  • Key Word Searches
  • Not sure what category a site might be under? Just plug in one, two, or three keywords and in seconds you will have a list of relevant and dynamic links!

  • Survey
  • We've seen the surveys on women on the Internet and the World-Wide Web. Who knows how reliable these figures are but we do know they are forming people's opinions about women online. We think WWWomen should add our voice to that public opinion. While not scientific, as it is voluntary, we still think the results from our users will lend a powerful statement to the public debate.

    You only need to fill out the survey once. Information will be entered into a database and survey results will be reported periodically to the media and interested businesses. NO information unique to you (such as email address) will be sold or given to external companies or sponsors! We want you to feel comfortable filling out this survey and adding your voice to the survey results of what women are doing online. See our Survey Page if you haven't filled one out for us yet.

  • Message Boards
  • WWWomen understands the importance of community among women and we are unique among the popular directories in adding an area where women can exchange email posts on various topics corresponding to areas of interest to women. WWWomen currently has over 50 discussion boards on a wide range of topics. Full list can be found at our Forums Page.

    Examples of announcement type of message boards are: WWWomen Help Desk. This is where you can post a question if you are having trouble finding a particular womens resource. Our Cool WebSites announcement board is a great place for new sites to say hello to our online community of women. And our Women Online News is where you will find interesting news clips about women and our Events Calendar is where you can post announcements of events, and conferences.
