The beginning of a collection of online writings and resources by/about/for women. I
haven't really had time to spiff it up yet, but it'll get better. If you have anything
you'd like to see on this page, send me mail! This page is heavily under construction,
as I add ten new links and a little organization, so it's a little haphazard, but soon (I
promise!) it'll be far cooler than before.
