Authors have placed particular emphasis on women's experiences as computer scientists, and the mechanisms through which approaches to system design and system design methodologies contribute to the gendered nature of computing. Other areas of emphasis include gender differences in computer use, the use of computers in everyday life, and discussions about the use of computers to promote citizenship. With the move of computers progressively more into our homes, authors have increasingly looked at the use of computers to work, and learn, from home."--Jacket." ;
