or how we are easier to talk to.

I am a women, I am a mother, I am a researcher, and I am interested in survival. The reason I share this is because I am the only women that I know that has these interests, and I dont think that I am alone. I would like to hear if there are any other women here that have something to bring to the table, that is usually filled with men.
I have several threads here on the survival forum, and I would like to link them here, but I would also like for anyone (men and women) to share some of what we feel as people, also opposite sexes that can bring different aspects to something as important as survival.
I feel that if SHTF, we can be very useful. If this was to happen tomorrow, I would be alone, as a women, and I feel that women need options if found alone. I am sure that we are all aware that some not all men, think that it would be harder for a women to fend for themselves. I would like to turn that into a myth!
I want to accent the qualities that make us women, and see how we can use them to our advantage when needed. Like having a very distinct way of paying attention to detail, or being able to make children feel better, or how we are easier to talk to. We also have instincts to be very helpful, and skills to make something out of nothing.
BTW Please I am not trying to upset any of the sexes, as I am a women and I speak as one. We are different but in good ways, and if we put both of those things together, we can be unstoppable.
This is why I want to be sure that everyone is welcome to add. I will add things that are easy to do, and easy to learn, but most of all, this thread is meant to uplift some women that may feel that they cannot be part of a survival community, and in fact we have more to bring to the table then many may think.
I would eventually like to start a small community of friends that can help each other, even though its been slowly happening in my offline life, I would love to start this here, with the friends that I have made here on ATS, this could be one heck of a good resource.

Starred and flagged NRE.
I don't think it matters what sex you are, although I tend to like women more than guys
The idea of having a community of prepared and like-minded individuals and families is a darned good one; the more people working in concert and bringing their skills to the table, the better the odds for surviving are, in my opinion. A roving gang of scavenger thugs wouldn't think twice about taking on a single person by themselves, but 60 armed people operating as a group? They'd tuck tail and run.
I have six older sisters, and nobody in their right mind would want to tangle with them. But a single woman alone when gangs are roaming the streets and highways might be at higher risk of something really bad happening to them. Without using the word, you know what I mean.
My own plan is for me and my ladylove to linkup with a bunch of my shooting buddies and their families and her friends from school. We would probably ride it out at a local independent Baptist church where a lot of them go. It's well placed and defensible.
Some people on here think alone is better; I think a big group of armed folks working together is best.
By the way: Good to meet you!
