About this title

Synopsis:

This is the first major analysis of the emerging cultural characteristics of women’s activities on the internet across the globe. It brings together anthropologists, communications experts, development workers and media analysts and women’s movement activists to ask: are women caught in the net or weaving it themselves?

The book maps both the social, economic and political biases in which the culture of cyberspace is embedded as well its revolutionary potential explores women’s knowledge of and access to the Internet across the world and puts forward concrete proposals for increasing women’s engagement with the new communication technologies shows how the Internet can create new spaces for women working within radically different cultural environments to access knowledge - and transform it rethinks the very idea of culture by looking at the links and discontinuities between the local and the global that cyberculture has highlighted.
