Women in Physics Email Group

The Committee on the Status of Women in Physics (CSWP), one of the committees of the American Physical Society (APS), welcomes you to WIPHYS, its electronic mailing list.

The WIPHYS list is dedicated to the discussion of issues involving women in physics. We believe an electronic forum offers unique possibilities to assist in creating an atmosphere of cooperation, mentoring, and support in a field where women are a minority, and thus often feel quite isolated. It also enhances our ability to offer services to our constituency. WIPHYS was "officially" started in January 1993, and now has over 800 subscribers.
