New Information Technology And Women
Women have been involved in computers since computers were first envisioned. They are present in all facets of computing and information technology. Despite this, their presence is comparatively small in these fields. It has also been claimed that there is a growing demand for IT workers with leadership, interpersonal, and communication skills in order to combat the general drop in worker retention and ineffective training. Cyberfeminism and the debates around what cyberfeminism is, have been around since the mid 1990s. It is a feminism that goes above looking at the impact of new information communication technologies for women to recognize that meaningful impact on us. Despite the growing number of women online, the content and culture of the internet remain male-dominated. Young women exploring the internet often encounter hateful material, violence, sexism, homophobia, racism, pornography, etc., which may cause discomfort and make the internet an unwelcome place for some.
