Nattering On The Net: Women, Power And Cyberspace
Dale Spender

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.

Write a review.

‘Dale Spender’s book is one of the first to describe [the] intelligent and creative interventions that are possible and necessary.’ 

Patricia Gillard, Women’s Studies International Forum

‘A clarion call for women to get wired.’ 

Hari Kunzru, Wired

‘… the book is incredibly readable and well indexed for dipping into. It is also a fabulous tool for a cybrarian trying to prove a point about copyright, plagiarism, and the future of print media. Dale Spender is a revolutionary in the way of Negroponte.’

Catherine Ryan, State Library of Victoria Newsletter
