Thought I'd post my reply to the list, since others may want to know 
about this.

Yes, anyone may sub*scribe to WMST-L; it's a moderated list, so 
"inappropriate" or off-topic postings are screened out before making it to 
the list at large. It's devoted primarily to issues of _teaching_ and 
_studying_ women's studies, so it's not a forum for discussion of general 
women's issues. And it's high volume, so it offers a digest option, which 
is the way I personally subscribe.

To join the list, send a message to

that leaves the subject line blank, and in the body of the message says

     sub*scribe wmst-l <yourfirstname yourlastname> (without the * and 
filling in your own name, no brackets)

You'll get a welcome message that tells you more about the list, and 
gives instructions for changing your subscription status to digest, if 
that's what you want.

I highly recommend it as a way of keeping up with cfps, job notices, and 
current issues in academic women's studies.
