Dale Spender is a whole-hearted convert to computing and cyberspace, but she has her concerns. How much will the Internet live up to its potential for improving the world and how much will it reinforce the gender power imbalances of the past and present? Her book is therefore about people more than computers. Her special focus is women, and what needs to be understood and done to build a more reasonable and equitable community in cyberspace--and the rest of the world.
