Bodacious Bovine With Attitude Goes On-Line

Daisy.co.nz

Daisy.co.nz, the interactive women’s website, went online this week.

Founder, Jo Evans says Daisy is definitely different to other websites aimed at women.

"The most important feature of Daisy.co.nz is providing opportunities for members to really get involved.“ says Evans.

"We give women the chance to come and relax, enjoy some articles, discuss issues, have a laugh and take a break at a website designed just for them. Updated daily, Daisy is a melting pot for women of all ages, where opinions are valued, different ideas are celebrated and nothing ever remains static."

"Our Steaming Cow Patty Award will be sure to invoke a lot of comment, with members nominating and voting for fellow New Zealanders, who they believe have provided outstanding contributions to stupidity" says Evans.

The winner will receive their award, produced by Daisy the cow, every month.

Daisy is a magazine style interactive website, with articles and resources on issues relating to women in New Zealand. Cow puns and analogies are frequent throughout the site.

Anyone will be able to view the content at Daisy, but women who want to participate in the interactive discussions are invited to join the website.

Membership is free and it will be the members who determine how the discussions develop and how the site evolves.

"Members are invited to comment on any article, disagree with the reviews, send in stories or if they want to let off some steam, create their own forums", says Evans.

The idea for an interactive women’s website came about from discussions with two groups of physically isolated women - rural women and women at home, either working or raising families.

“Once we started researching the concept, we found enormous support for the idea”, says Evans. “Women are leading busy lives and can feel isolated, even when in big cities”, says Evans.

"Daisy will give women some ‘me’ time, by giving them access to information and the opportunity to discuss issues with other women in a friendly environment.”
