The newsgroups are public, open to both men and women. Soc. feminism is moderated; the others are not and tend to be somewhat wilder and more argumentative. Since methods of accessing Usenet newsgroups vary from system to system, the best thing would be to ask the computer people at your institution how to access these newsgroups on your particular system.
