Women on the internet

Women on the internet

If you are looking for other young people to share your ideas and problems with, and sometimes people in the real world don’t seem to understand you, the Internet provides a number of places for people to talk about pretty much anything.

There are a number of social networking sites and discussion platforms for all kinds of people; men and women, the youth and the elderly, students and professionals, gay, straight and bisexual people, and people with just about any interest you can think of.

These sites are a good place for you to express yourself, or, if you don’t wish to write yourself, you can read other people’s ideas and advice and try to integrate them into your own life. Since you can participate in online conversations without giving your real name, these sites also provide a great opportunity to talk about things that you might not be comfortable talking to your friends about.

Here are some suggestions for Web sites that cater specifically to women. But it doesn’t take a lot of looking around to find sites that focus on your identity and interests. Have a look around and start talking and listening online.
