Is it true that women use technology, but that men fall in love with it? What are the effects of electronic networks, of cyber-relationships on class, race and gender boundaries? Dale Spender reveals that men are writing the road rules for the superhighway and subjecting women to new forms of harassment, virtual violence and data rape. But she also conveys her sheer delight in these new technologies arguing that it is creating unimaginable opportunities in education and authoring.
