Feminist Email Lists

There are several feminist Listserv® that offer opportunities for women to engage in dialogue about feminist issues at the national and international levels, as well as request suggestions and information about teaching and scholarship about the psychology of women. 

POWR-L

POWR-L is a public electronic mail list for people interested in sharing information and resources in the psychology of women. Its purpose is to facilitate discussion of current topics, research, teaching strategies, and practice issues among people interested in the discipline of psychology of women, and to publicize relevant conferences, job announcements, calls for papers, publications, and the like. It is open to anyone interested in the field.

Subscribe to POWR-L and send a message to the Listserv® that consists of only one line in the body of your message:

  • Subscribe POWR-L yourfirstname yourlastname

Do not include the < and > marks nor a period or subject heading.

Unsubscribe by sending a message to the Listserv that consists of only one line in the body of your message:

  • Unsubscribe POWR-L

If you experience problems with the list, you can e-mail POWR-L co-moderators Ellen Halpern and Lynn Collins in the Psychology Department at La Salle University. POWR-L is cosponsored by the Association for Women in Psychology and by Division 35 (Society for the Psychology of Women) of the American Psychological Association. However, neither the Division nor the Association is responsible for the content of messages posted to the list by subscribers, and the opinions posted on POWR-L are not necessarily those of the Association or the Division.

If you have any further questions about the Listserv please visit Ken Pope's site for Listserv information and utilities to move back and forth between "mail" and "no mail" status, to go back and forth between "digest" (i.e., you receive one email from the list every day which contains all the messages that have been posted during the prior 24-hours) and "individual message" status, to unsubscribe, and so on. The site also simplifies and automates the process of searching the powr-l archives and provides free access to full-text reprints, preprints, tables of research data, and other resources of the American Psychological Association

PWINET-L

Pwinet-l is intended to be of interest to feminist psychologists interested in international issues. Please send us any announcements that might be relevant. It can also be used to ask other list members questions about international research.

This list is administered manually. If you would like to join the list, please e-mail Irene Hanson Frieze in the Department of Psychology at University of Pittsburgh and request to be added. She will provide you with additional instructions. Visit Irene's website.

WMST-L

WMST-L is an international electronic forum for people involved in Women's Studies as teachers, researchers, librarians, and/or program administrators. It offers a rapid and cost-free way for participants to ask questions and exchange information about the academic side of Women's Studies: current research, teaching strategies, useful texts and films, innovative courses, funding sources, building Women's Studies majors, minors, and graduate programs, relations between Women's Studies and other "minority studies" programs, and other academic issues.
