Editorial Reviews

"Corneliussen examines why expansive gender equity in Norway seems to influence every major segment of society - except computing technology. Her discourse analysis explores reasons for stability in gender-ICT relations, and suggests pressure points for change." - Thomas J. Misa, University of Minnesota "Corneliussen's book is a challenging intervention into the debate over gender and technology. Through a diffractive reading of the research, Corneliussen tells an alternative story about gender and technology, demonstrating that their relations are not stable and fixed but hold potential for change." - Susan Hekman, University of Texas at Arlington
