I recieved this message the other day. It looks like it’s shaping up to be a great project.

Hi there,

On 10 March 2007 over 400 women and men travelled across the country
to attend the third FEM Conference – FEM 07. The conference revealed
a huge wealth of fantastic feminist activism across the UK – and a
real hunger for more opportunities to close the inequality gaps
between women and men.

So…. in response to this…we have great pleasure in introducing to
you FEM SOC – a new resource and networking website for grass roots
feminist activists!

http://www.femsoc.org.uk

FEM SOC AIMS TO…
– Celebrate grass roots feminist activism
– Inspire individuals to get active in feminism
– Provide information and resources to support activism
