I saw your posting and I wanted to give you some resources which may help
you and your new group. The first is The second is that
you should contact your local NOW (National Organization for Women)
chapter..They can help spread the word for you and refer girls in your area
to you if they are interested. Finally, I'm not sure where you're from--but
I am editor of a book called "The Smart Girl's Guide to College." It was
just published in September and Ms. Magazine reviewed it and said it was a
feminist book written by women in college to help girls in high school make
the perfect college choice. I've been doing speaking engagements to high
school girls--I'd love to come and talk with your group about women's issues
and how they relate to your college search. I'm in New York City--in the
Fall I'll be speaking at schools in the Northeast..Let me know if you're
interested...Regradless..great luck with your group..Take care..
