Electronic Mailing Lists/Forums for Women

A Compilation List by Joan Korenman

One of the many things women online are good at is communicating and creating community. One way to communicate is through email. Mailing lists are groups of people who share emails around a particular topic or interest. It is different than public Usenet discussion groups in that the shared emails all come into your email software. This allows moderators to more closely screen out junk and abuse.

If you are new to mailing lists, you should first read up on how they work and the do's and don'ts of mailing list etiquette. A primer guide will get you started.

Before venturing out to search on mailing lists, be sure and check out the mailing lists sponsored by WWWomen!


We think the best compiled source for women's mailing lists is by Dr. Joan Korenman, Director of Women's Studies at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County.
