The 3rd WWWave
feminism for the new millenium

"We are a group of women who feel passionately about women's issues, and we decided to put up a site that would reflect the unique view of women's issues and feminism in the generation of women who came of age in the 80's. You'll find historical information that you might not have known, discussion of politics, sexuality, daily life, sports and hobbies . . . and lots more! Feminism is not dead; in fact, it's on the rise again, but in a new form.(...) We offer facts that you probably didn't learn in school; opinions about issues we face at home, at work, and in our relationships; rants about our frustrations-- which may help you identify some of your own frustrations; and solutions for a more woman-friendly world." Take a look at their bookshelf! http://www.3rdwwwave.com/

"Hi! I'm Alex, a CyberGrrrl activist!
Using the internet for feminist activism empowers women to use technology while working toward feminist social change. It is CyberFeminism.
By exploring these 6 areas of CyberFeminist activism, you'll learn about activism on the internet and how to use the internet in your individual or group activism. This website is practical, fun, and hopefully will make these activist resources more approachable. Be empowered--be a CyberFeminist! I'll see you along the way! -Alex "

VNS Matrix
(Australia)
VNS Matrix emerged from the Cyberswamp during a steamy Southern Australian Summer, circa 1991. From 1991 - 1997 they presented several installations and public art works in Australia and overseas, working with new media, photography, sound and video. Along with Sadie Plant, they coined the term 'cyberfeminism' in the early 1990's. The impetus of the group was to investigate and decipher the narratives of domination and control which surround high technological culture, and explore the construction of social space, identity and sexuality in cyberspace. The project which they pursued was one of debunking the masculinist myths which might alienate women from technological devices and their cultural products. They believe that women who hijack the tools of domination and control introduce a rupture into a highly systematised culture by infecting the machines with radical thought, diverting them from their inherent purpose of linear topdown mastery.” http://lx.sysx.org/vnsmatrix.html
