Summary

Hacking, software crime, online harassment and cyberstalking, Internet pornography, computer mediated communications, privacy and online community and democracy are information technology topics with an implicit gender dimension which has rarely been explored. Gender, Ethics and Information Technology uses feminist ethics to offer an original analysis of these key issues. It is an interdisciplinary work involving critical and gender studies of science and technology, communications studies, social studies of technology, information systems, and computer ethics.

Author Biography
