I'm quite keen to do more and might just get me off my bum to get more
involved. I have to admit, i'm a little confused about how things work
re editorial and stuff. a womans recruitment drive would be useful.

>> At the moment there is a vibrant discussion on the imc-women list about
>> how editorial access is distributed on the Indymedia (Ireland) website,
>> and why there are less female editors than men.
>> Well, this discussion got me reflecting a bit about our own collective.
>> Will ask today at our meeting what our volunteers think about the
>> editorship on indymedia (scotland), the involvement (or lack of it) of
>> women as editors/administrators and the defintion of indymedia and if we
>> should change anything a little bit (very drastic proposals probably would
>> need a lot of reflection).
>> And I went through all our user accounts and invited every woman who
>> contributed news and direct action reports to become an editor and
>> promoted her to have editorial privileges.
>> Do we have anybody else who is interested?
>> Do we want to announce any other points for the meeting to discuss today.
>> Is it at 7.30pm as usual downstairs in Infoseed?
>> I don't have keys anymore though, I think I mislaid them or even lost
>> cheerio Ulla
>> and from the email to imc-women:
>> By the way I am not sure if anybody of you contributed an article to our
>> Indymedia Scotland site, but I have hidden it.
>> "Ireland Indymedia bans criticism of the Lord Rees-Mogg ?"
>> - it was not news
>> - it critises other activists and indymedia collectives
>> - it was not an action report
>> - it is only personal opinion (please post on own blog)
>> - it is a repost from other indymedia sites
>> - it is not current/imediate
>> - it is not written for Indymedia Scotland
>> - it is not relevant for our audience
>> Please refer to our mission statement, about us description and editorial
>> guidelines to know what postings we endorse to highlight on our grassroots
