Woman's Forum

Wasn't there a woman's forum at one time?

Yes, but it seems to have disappeared.

Re: Woman's Forum

There is still a Mermaids group which is women only.

Re: Woman's Forum

For interested followers looking for a women's forum, check out "Women Who Sail" on Facebook. Maje already belongs, I believe, but others reading this thread may want to know about it.

My understand is that it disappeared because of unhelpful and derisive comments made by other members, mostly male.

Re: Woman's Forum

Every time I read it, it seemed fine. Certainly bantering goes on during other threads.

Re: Woman's Forum

Oh, the rumours that fly around .

A few months ago several small forums were merged into this one:
Families, Kids and Pets Afloat - Cruisers & Sailing Forums

All the old threads are still there. The "Woman's Forum" had far more men contributing than women anyway, so the name was meaningless .

Re: Woman's Forum

To me its an idea from the "past"..women are engaged in every type of activity these days and don't need anything special for them.

Re: Woman's Forum

God forbid there be a men's forum, that would be sexist!

I've sent several join requests to "Women who sail" and have never received a response. It's been a bit frustrating.
