Electronic Discussion Groups aka Mailing Lists are like closed bulletin boards. You "subscribe," though there is no fee or commitment for doing so. You can then send a message, which is distributed to everyone else on the list. People can respond to you privately, or to the list publicly. Some lists are moderated (the owner weeds out flames, irrelevancies and redundancies) but many aren't. Some come in digest form where messages are collected and sent in a batch once or so daily - always choose this option when available since some lists generate huge volumes of mail. You can even search through past postings.
Save the confirmation letter you receive when you subscribe, since it contains valuable information, like how to UN-subscribe, or search the message archive. There are discussion groups for every topic imaginable. Sometimes, a kind soul will compile and annotate a list of related lists for you!
You can even create your own discussion group very easily at Yahoo Groups http://groups.yahoo.com/
A list of forums related to women and gender issues is maintained by Joan Korneman at:
I subscribe to these:
A very lively list for scholars and anyone interested in women's history. You can do a keyword search of the archives, and get subscription information at their web site.
Another active and well-organized list, with a searchable archive, for those working in the field of Women's Studies. Subscribe online at the website.

National Council for Research on Women http://www.ncrw.org
Research information on women and girls has "gone missing" from government websites and publications during the Bush administration, and misinformation is shaping government actions on issues that affect women's lives. The NCRW not only documents these disappearances and misrepresentations, but provides sources of reliable research information on women and girls.

An organization devoted to promoting women's and gender history in the Midwestern United States. They provide a forum for networking and sponsor a conference every 2 years.
