Editorial Reviews

Review

Gender and Computers presents evidence that shows girls and young women are being left behind on the road to information technology. This book not only documents the digital divide but also provides guideposts to overcoming it. The authors' goal is to stimulate social scientists and educators to further research this topic to generate solutions to the problem. 

Adolescence

The authors introduce a variety of pertinent psychological studies, mostly experimental, in the text to inform and convince the readers about the digital divide. This book could be an excellent supplementary text for undergraduate and graduate courses pertaining to gender equity in education.
Electronic Magazine of Multicultural Education

...the book is a joy to read. I, at least, was immediately 'hooked,' wanted to 'read on'...[It] is likely to be in the 'same league' as Bob Cialdini's Influence and Elliot Aronson's Nobody Left to Hate--two important (and unique) books that are equally 'at home' in the living room and the college classroom...this book is about something that is extraordinarily important that is relevant to (or 'touches') virtually everybody...Cooper is the acknowledged expert in this area....

I enjoyed reading the material and I'm sure undergraduates would, too. The anecdotes are interesting.

This book will appeal to those who teach psychologically oriented college-level courses on gender issues, and on the social implications of computer technology....it it addresses a timely and important topic.

Format: Paperback
This book really goes all the way to give an understanding on how the single individual reacts towards the existing stereotypes and tries to fullfill the common expectancies. Convincing. A must read.
