Welcome to Feminism/Gender Watch,

Women don't just hold up half the sky. They constitute half of all that is under the sun and moon. And their subordination, in any manner at all, is, of course, completely unacceptable to all people, male or female, who are serious about justice and equity.

ZCom's Gender/Feminism Watch page seeks to present news, analysis, and vision bearing on the situation and activty of women to eliminate the subordination they have endured.

Please send any ideas you may have for other or additional content from our database you think ought to appear in content boxes on this page to sysop@zmag.org.
