I believe we have an obligation to our children to pass on what rights we have obtained. These rights are slowly being taken away from us and we cannot sit back and let this happen. We need to speak out and be heard.

I am a woman who feels that the only Damsel in Distress is one who has misplaced her sword; yet that sword is there to block and guard with, never to attack. I am an eclectic pagan who follows the Wiccan Rede and believes in balance in all things, light and dark, strong and weak. I believe women should be taught to see value in more that just their appearances or household skills. I respect the rights of all to have opinions, and I ask only that others respect my right to hold a Different one. I believe that anger and pain and challenges must be faced and dealt with and learned from, not simply pushed away because it "doesn't fit our creed". I have faced many challenges and moved past them to new tests. Someone once said "If you don't stand for something you'll fall for anything." and I think these are wise words indeed.
I am a Cat-aholic, designer, writer and sometime artist working towards becoming a full fledged Eccentric Old Lady. My greatest joys come from making others happy and from watching the discovery of bliss in day to day life. I'd rather befriend the dragon and have it add guided flights to the joys of my life than to slay it and have to lose it's beauty.

I am 47, a mother of 2, divorced twice, I now choose to live alone with my children. I live in Scotland and since I was at college I have been involved with womens'groups, and fought many campaigns eg Woman's right to choose, against the abortion amendment bill. women against rape, reclaim the night marches etc. Now feminism seems to be a dirty word over here, no one will admit to being a feminist any more and frankly I miss the company of likeminded people. I have a 14 year old daughter, called Rhiannon after the Goddess, and I worry about what sort of world she's growing up into. The fight for womens' rights has NOT been won. I adored your poem, I found it so emotive, I agree with your mission statement, and I would like to join your group.

Ever since I was a child I believed that women were always stronger than men. I made that a point to any boy who would harass me. I've also always believed that god was female. And ever since I was ten I said to myself...I'm going to fight for my rights and others as well! (Obviously not exactly like that. But I always wanted to prove women weren't just damsels in distress who needed their knight in shining armour!)

I am an abuse survivor from many years of abuse, I am going on to live my life though. I also have Bipolar Disorder and this has caused me to have a harder time sometimes. I got through it as a child by thinking of myself as a warrior so when I saw your logo on a web page I immediately thought of that and it just felt right.

I have fought my whole life between being the "good little girl" and being "myself". Now that I am over 49 I am brave enough to explore "myself". I am enjoying my spiritual exploration into the "new age" and "Goddess" realms. I am learning to be a lightworker and really enjoying the process as well as gaining much insight into my past actions and beliefs. Although I have found the woman's role to be boring and frustrating most of the time, I have never wanted to be a man because I always believed deep inside that to be a woman was to be very powerful - I just didn't know how. Now I am learning.
