Welcome to the Women's Perspectives Forum! This is a forum where our female members are welcome to talk about ideas, concerns, and anything surrounding diving that their male counterparts - and some women as well - may not experience or care about. While participation in this forum by any of our members is not excluded, we ask that everyone recognize that this forum is a NO TROLL ZONE devoted to subjects that primarily concern female divers. As such, we ask that all participation be confined to civil discussion of the posted topics without questioning the need for the topic or forum itself. Please note that offtopic or posts that do not conform to the spirit of this particular forum may be removed with or without notice. If you have any questions at all about whether a post is appropriate here, please PM a member of the moderating team first and they will be happy to screen it for you. Your cooperation is appreciated.
