THE AMAZON XOCIETY
is a non-profit feminist organization based in Houston, TX. [Membership NOT limited to Texas] We are modern Amazons dedicated to the practical empowerment of women. This is a general discussion list for members and women seeking membership who desire to create real change. Topics cover Amazon business including meeting announcements, project development, Amazon and feminist philosophies. We seek serious, intelligent, diligent, action-oriented women.
Will consider alliances with other Amazon groups based on character, integrity, and complementary mission.Honoring Women and Their Struggles While Creating Sisterhood
