No longer hollering out the back door into the night.
When this web site was first started, there was no way to anticipate that it would become an online community where women from many places could speak out and be heard by a diverse audience around the globe.  We were used to feeling like we were "hollering out the back door into the night."  Belonging to an online community has opened up a new world for us.  Thanks to everyone who is interested in rural women's issues!  These sites have links to the Rural Womyn Zone and many are interesting resources for rural women.

Note June 2005:  This page is no longer being maintained. Some of the links below may no longer work.

The Aspen Institute- May 2000
The Rural Womyn Zone strives to impart refreshing content as well as providing a platform for women's voices. As we reported in our May-June1998 newsletter this site was created to be a positive online community for women in the rural US, Canada and abroad. Thankfully the Rural Womyn Zone continues to be an excellent example of how rural folks can "connect" with others who share common interests. The site includes a section on domestic violence, chat rooms, a rural activist scrapbook, and offbeat rural humor.

Rural Update, May - June 1998
The Web discovery of the month goes to the Rural Womyn Zone; it's well-designed, with content that's more than just pointers to other web sites. This is an example of what a rural individual can do to connect with others who share common interests.  Created to be a positive on-line community for women in the rural U.S., the site includes a section on domestic violence, a rural activist scrapbook, chat rooms, and even rural feminist humor.

A web site for rural feminists mainly in the United States but certainly of broader interest. A serious endeavour containing numerous links both to documents and to organizations covering a broad range of items of interest to academics, practitioners and farming feminists!

Western Wisconsin's Online Community
says of the Rural Womyn Zone, "A feminist site that finally deals with issues facing rural women, and their needs. "
