ISIS, MANILA

    It was 22 years ago, in 1974, that the idea for Isis was born in the kitchens of three dedicated and enterprising feminists. The 70s, as everyone knows, was a time of a worldwide reawakening of the activist women's movement. Judy Siddens, Jane Cottingham and Marilee Karl dreamt of setting up an information and communication channel which would link up women across the world.

    The mass media of the time largely ignored the women's movement in the South and distorted or ridiculed feminism in the North. Even progressive non-government organisations considered women and women's issues to be of secondary importance to what they considered as the 'main' political, economic, social and cultural struggles. Marilee Karl and her friends decided to create an organisation whose mission would be to participate in and promote women's self-empowerment. They wanted to provide women and women's groups world wide with spaces and opportunities through which they could communicate, share information, experiences, ideas and analysis, and to network and forge links.They named the organisation after Isis the Egyptian Goddess of Creation.
