Where are Australian women and girls talking about the Republic and the Preamble on-line?

Discussion forums on the republic:

1.    Women, including women from Young Australians for a Republic, are talking on the Australian Republic Debate discussion forum site: www.republicdebate.com.au

A poll on the republic is taking place on On Line Opinion, a non-aligned Australian Internet Journal of Political and Social Opinion. There is a survey with wording similar to the referendum question on the republic and a question about direct election versus appointment of the President by parliament. It can be found at: www.onlineopinion.com.au
