¡@¡@The establishment of Women & Community Web Team was based on the ideas of "pro-women" and "pro-community interaction."
¡@Although women represent half of the population of Taiwan, they are still weak whether in cultural, political, legal, social, and economic aspects because they have been long treated unequally. Through the activities in study groups, educational trainings, the publication of women-related resources, and the promotion of computer-manipulation, internet courses, we attempt to accumulate as comprehensive resources as we can to enahnce Taiwan women's access to information for self-development and to empower their social involvement to speak for their human rights.
¡@By joining the community affairs together, community members would learn to attain their goals by the division of labor and active participation, from which they could learn how to be the master of their community and the country. Therefore, early in the establishment of the Frontier Foundation, community movement and grassroot workers' training have been two important missions among its objectives. To attain these goals, the Frontier Foundation has organized the "community workshop," published the Community Resources Handbook, and is making "The World Wide Web of Community Works."
