womentoarms.net, a longstanding women's firearms website changed hands this month.

Women To Arms! (http://www.WomenToArms.net), a longstanding women’s firearms advocacy website has changed hands effective September 1st of this year. On August 18th, 2004 the founder of Women to Arms notified the Women to Arms discussion group that the closing of the site and discussion forum was imminent. Samantha M. Stewart, a member of the group and founder of http://www.feminists4firearms.com stepped forward and offered to take over the discussion group and the website to keep it going. “This group is one of the longest standing women’s firearms forums on the net, and has the most active discussion group; I didn’t want to see that go away” said Stewart. Stewart plans on revamping the website, and updating many of its section, and also plans on introducing new weekly topics to the group’s discussion forum to get more members actively participating in the dialogue.

Women to Arms has been online since July 14th of 2001, and was founded by Flo Sielaff as an online forum dedicated to women’s firearms ownership and participation in the fight for our constitutional right to keep and bear arms. The website contains a variety of information on the right to keep and bear arms, and articles by women on the subject.

The Women To Arms discussion group, hosted in yahoo groups, boasts over 30 members, and is open to women only. The new group owner has no plans on changing this policy in the near future. “I would like to keep this group set up the way it was originally intended, I think it is working this way” said Stewart. Stewart also noted that men are welcome in the forums on her other site, and that this has made some women uncomfortable. “I still get more emails from women rather than posts in the open forums on the other site, having both forums set up differently gives women more options on how and where they would like to participate, and what I care about most is getting more women involved in the fight for our right to keep and bear arms”.
