Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Like many past physical frontiers of the world, the online world has been, until recently, a bastion of male prerogative. Thankfully this is changing as more women gain access, and with statistical change comes a shift in online interpersonal relations and the very nature of the Net. Wired Women contains 15 essays written by women that provide a much-needed new perspective on a life--and a literature--that had for years been an odd cross between macho and nerdy.

From Library Journal

Weise, an Associated Press Internet correspondent, and Cherny, a researcher at AT&T Bell Labs, have pulled together 15 essays offering various insights from women heavily involved in the Internet. The topics range from the male chauvinism that permeates the net to cybercensorship at Carnegie Mellon. Many of the women narrate personal experiences, usually occurring on the job or while they were enrolled in an academic program. The world described is heavily chauvinistic yet populated with groups and mechanisms capable of providing diverse support to women from all parts of society. Some of the excitement and the technological breakthroughs that the Internet offers come through here, but the book lacks coherence and interpretation or analysis of what these anecdotal contributions really signify. For larger collections only.?Hilary Burton, Lawrence Livermore National Lab., Livermore, Cal.
