There's plenty of female-specific content out there on the Net, ranging from G-spots and multiple orgasms through feminist theory and lesbianism to fashion and beauty. Much of it comes from the US and there's an increasing amount of content originating in Australia.
Many of the content providers have plenty of information aimed at women.
AOL (members.aol.com), which has always led the pack in terms of family input, includes pregnancy, birth control, pre- and post-natal care and parental advice, along with a host of well used chat forums on these subjects.
You can search for information by subject but whether you're looking for health, fashion or financial advice, the easiest places to start are at the large independent sites. Type in www.women.com and you'll find the beautiful icon-based Woman's Wire which is divided into sections such as health, finance, women making headlines, style and work, all of which contain links to a range of other sites and bulletin boards. Through the work section, for instance, you can get connected to a working mothers' chat line; through health you can access information ranging from breast cancer to nutrition and exercise.
Cybergrrl (www.cybergirl.com) is a funkier site which deals with most of the above, with a greater emphasis on women's studies, women in politics, art and education. It includes the Femina search engine, developed specifically to search for female content.
Many of the beauty companies now have sites on the Web and they are also well linked. Via the Clinique pages (www.clinique.com), for instance, you can access breast cancer forums and a guide to the Net as well as beauty advice and product news.
Aside from that, most of the women's magazines are Webbing up, too. One of the most recent is New Woman at www.erack.com/nwoman. while at the Conde Nast site (www.condenast.co.uk) you'll still find Vogue, Tatler and the like.
