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.
'This book is highly recommended for those involved in computer ethics, both academics and practitioners, and also those involved with the social studies of science and technology more generally. However, it also deserves a much wider audience of those concerned with the continuing ubiquity of gendered inequalities.' - David Sanford Horner, Information, Communication& Society
