The Internet is a rapidly emerging medium, both locally and worldwide.
It is a relatively cheap and easy way to disseminate large volumes of
information. Although larger organizations and corporate lobbies have
begun to take advantage of the medium to disseminate their information
and opinions, many womenís groups and other activists in the South have
yet to explore the potential of the medium. This initiative is an effort
to begin this exploration.
We look forward to your responses and also submissions and suggestions.
