    schema:reviewBody ""This book investigates women's perception of computers and describes the working environment for women in computing." "When computers have so much to offer - in the arts, in the workplace, or as labour-saving devices at home - women appear to have accepted computing as essentially a man's province. The author considers the effect of the culture and language of computing as well as the impact of the hardware in order to account for why so few women study computing in secondary and higher education. There is also consideration of whether there are more fundamental factors that deter women." "The book takes a strongly feminist standpoint without using technical terms from sociology or feminist theory. No prior knowledge of computing is assumed and all computing terms are explained, though not in ways patronising to the expert." "With its wide-ranging observations and ideas, this book makes an interesting and valuable contribution to the analysis of women's role in computing. The framework provided helps the reader to think about how women may be able to use computers creatively in the future and to take an equal role with men in the dramatic developments yet to come."--Jacket." ;
