"Feminist.com was founded on the principle that women and girls are steered away from math, science, and technology, traditionally have trouble breaking into the "old boy's network," and may not feel comfortable enough to participate in online networking...at least in the numbers that men do. According to Feminist.com, the percent of women online has grown to as much as 30%, but it's still a disappointing turnout. This site works to encourage women to connect with an array of resources and links that support women's issues and human rights concerns in general. The Activism section includes a calendar of urgent actions and newsletters from a variety of organizations. Also check out the impressive collection of health and employment resources, and the Articles and Speeches section." - The Net Magazine

"The richness of the tree that greets the visitor to this site is an indication of the resources presented within...Feminist.com balances its own content with links to other Internet offerings. The balance combines to create comprehensive access to information by and for women. For good reading, stop by Articles and Speeches. Read Hillary Clinton's excellent address to delegates of the UN Women's Conference in Beijing. Or enjoy an interview with Gloria Steinem, who explains, among other things, that "feminist" is not a bad word. If reading isn't your preference for the moment, try the Activism section for some exercise. The opportunities are quite diverse and are housed both on the Feminist.com site and elsewhere. Finally, you can let your wallet support women's efforts by patronizing some of the Women Owned Businesses listed on the site... Let Feminist.com guide you to health information, activism and much more." - WebActive Featured Sites

"Feminist.com is the kind of site that would give Rush Limbaugh nightmares. With editorials, online and offline resources, and classifieds, Feminist.com would justify the existence of the World Wide Web even if it were the only site there. But since it also offers a list of links to other feminist sites, it's a good thing it's not." - Wild Wild Web Television Show

And don't be afraid of the URL - there's a lot to enjoy even if you think the F word has four letters." - Tripod Women's Room
