There is a women in science and engineering group - WISENET, which can be
subscribed to at:


by writing

SUBscribe WISENET <full_name>

(I have noticed many familiar names in women in bio -  I think that there

being overwhelmed by the current flow, and find that the digests in my
other lists help a great deal.
