Welcome to Y2K Women -- the Year 2000 Problem
Site Exclusively Designed for Women
Many people (men and women alike) don't know how to handle an overwhelming problem
like Y2K -- a situation that's riddled with change and anxiety. So they, in essence,
"shut down" and don't even want to think about it, let alone make
Y2K For Women is designed to explain the Year
2000 Problem (Y2K) to women who have no, or very limited, computer
knowledge, how it impacts
women personally, what
women can do, and FAQs
(frequently asked questions).
Most of the current Y2K Web sites are written by men and (IMHO) tend to be focused
on how to try and "fix" the problem -- they tend to be more analytical
and emphasize the "big picture." Y2KWomen doesn't deal with the technical
side of the Y2K problem; my goal is to focus on the practical side of the problem
-- where the rubber meets the road -- and how this will impact our families and us.
So I designed a Home
Preparedness Checklist you can use to walk through each room of your
house to make sure you haven't missed anything in your Y2K preparations.
One of the questions I keep hearing over
and over is, "Where do I start?" So I decided to put together a list of resources that I've checked out
personally and feel comfortable recommending so you can understand the Y2K problem
and the implications for us as women -- whether we're single women, wives, grandmothers,
sisters or whatever role we happen to be in. (These include my own products as well,
<blush> including my new book Y2K for Women: How to Protect Your Home and Family in
the Coming Crisis.)
Y2Kwomen also provides a free
electronic newsletter (e-zine) "Dear Karen" where some of
the tough emotional concerns can be addressed -- like the communication problems
many women face with people they care about. Plus, there's a Y2Kwomen chat room where you can talk with other
women and exchange ideas 24 hours a day!
I believe that since women have the primary focus of the home, their needs and
issues are different! If you know of anything that might be helpful for women, or
if you come across anything you think would be good for mothers to know, I'd love
to hear about it. Just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I know that when there is a crisis, women are the first to help and encourage
one another. In closing, no matter what happens, whether there are serious Y2K problems
or if Y2K turns out to be just minor inconveniences, there is always hope. We need
to pray and ask for God's strength to handle whatever happens together.
