Synopsis: Written in an engaging and accessible style, this first broadly focused compensatory history of technology not only includes women's contributions but begins the long-overdue task of redefining technology and significant technology and to value these contributions correctly. Stanley traces women's inventions in five vital areas of technology worldwide--agriculture, medicine, reproduction, machines, and computers--from prehistory (or origin) forward, profiling hundreds of women, both famous and obscure. The author does not ignore theory. She contributes a paradigm for male takeovers of technologies originated by women.

About the Author: Autumn Stanley, an independent scholar, has presented her work at national and international conferences on women and work, history of technology, women's studies, and business history and published papers in scholarly journals and in essay collections from Joan Rothschild's pathbreaking Machina ex Dea (1983) to Dale Spender and Cheris Kramarae's Knowledge Explosion (1992). Formerly affiliated with Stanford's Institute for Research on Women and Gender (1984-1988), she is a member of the Institute for Historical Study.
