Happy Birthday to Us!

This is just a note to say yay! This site is one year old! Paper anniversary, so I’m told!

One year ago I was cajoled into starting a feminist ezine, and after weeks of dithering and wondering whether I should, I finally got around to it. I wanted to find out if other UK feminists were out there and what they thought about stuff, and wanted especially to let other young feminists know that they were not alone. The time has flown by so quickly and it’s been fantastic. Now I know I’m not alone, and neither I hope do you! What’s more, I’m discovering more UK feminist resources as I go along, and sharing it all with you. I’ve made friends and had the opportunity to read intelligent and interesting contributions from various people…

So many many thanks and love go out to all the people who’ve contributed: Jen Clarke, Janet Evans, Lynn Cicada, Geethika Jayatilaka, Lorraine Douglas, Natasha Walter, Natasha Forrest, Jane Collins, Marion Beach, and Naimh Devlin.

Thanks to each and every one of you who’s emailed to give me support and encouragement, especially all the Fawcett Society staff and Riot Girl London.

Sorry if I have forgotten anyone!

Special extra thanks go to Andrew Bowden for designing and building the site. Cheers to www.durge.org for hosting us.

PLEASE keep contributing – this site is what you make it. Here’s to another great year!
