This work suggests that the advances in technology in the 20th century have provoked a profound shift in the way women think about their bodies. Genetic engineering, reproductive technology and the advent of virtual reality all fundamentally affect basic categories of "self" and "gender". The author argues that the two traditional responses of technophobia or technomania are simply inadequate for the choices facing women today. She charts the development of these two responses across a wide cultural terrain: from ecofeminism's uncritical celebration of women and nature to foetal imaging, struggles over women and the military, and the advent of cyborg politics.
