Welcome to '''FeministWiki''', a wiki and integrated digital platform for the feminist community.
    
A ''wiki'' is a knowledge-base like an encyclopedia, but managed by the public.  The FeministWiki specializes on feminism, and is managed by feminists and their supporters.  It aims to archive and present information relevant to feminism, and explain feminist perspectives to the reader.

Further, the FeministWiki aims to offer a complete "digital home" for feminists, including a discussion forum, a messaging/chat system, private and shared online storage for large files, and more.  You don't need to provide any personally identifying information to become a member, nor do you need to pay; the modest number of users makes the platform cheap to run.

Heads up: '''the FeministWiki needs you'''.  All of the technical infrastructure of the FeministWiki is only useful if there's a community making use of it, and content on the wiki doesn't write itself!  Be bold, don't shy off of asking for membership, and let the community and the world benefit from your added knowledge.  You can become a member even if you have no intention to contribute to the actual wiki; feel free to chat away with other members, discuss matters important to you on the forum, or use the file storage to have a central place to store your favorite information-material on feminism.

The project is mere months old and the community is yet in an infantile stage, but with your contribution, it will grow.
