Each of the ten chapters in "Women, Gender, and Technology" explores a different aspect of how gender and technology work - and are at work - in particular domains, including film narratives, reproductive technologies, information technology, and the profession of engineering. The volume's contributors include representatives of over half a dozen different disciplines, and each provides a novel perspective on the foundational idea that gender and technology co-create one another. Together, their articles provide a window on to the rich and complex issues that arise in the attempt to understand the relationship between these profoundly intertwined notions.
An interdisciplinary investigation of the co-creation of gender and technology
"This book adds a new focus to the important implications of technological influence on gender relations and the gendered construction of knowledge. I recommend this book for scholars of all disciplines who are looking for a collection of essays to extend their lens toward gender and technology."--"Review of Policy Research "
