Chris, there are several feminist lists out there, some relevant to
anthropologist specifically. I am on two, neither of which overwhelm me with
mail, and both lists seem reasonable and non-contentious.
Committee on status of women in archaeology, but issues are discussed that are
relevant to non-archaeological women anthropologists. There are often arch.
job postings, announcements of meetings and conferences, etc.
I was introduced to feminisa by one of my students who is writing a paper on
female genital mutilation. She says she joined and discovered an ongoing
conversation on exactly this topic. I have seen such things as 1) discussion
of resources (giant bib) on women and islam; 2) a first-person story about a
rape; 3) a querry about classroom materials on women and the law, particularly
women of color; 4) a discussion of women's rights in developing countries with
bibliographic materials being offered up. I am saving and downloading a bunch
of this stuff because it is all so useful to people who teach gender courses in

I hope both these lists continue to have the friendly, supportive character
they do now.

There are lots of other lists to explore. Look in the gopher for lists of
lists -- I have found it under UCIrvine's gopher services, worldwide info.
There are pages of lists on women and feminism. I believe I offered "women" as
the keyword to access this list of lists.

Good question.
