Feminism Confronts Technologyby Judy Wajcman
'This is a well-written, coherent, intelligent, and thoughtful statement of the interrelationship between gender and technology in modern Western society. A significantly more nuanced discussion of these complex interrelationships than one generally sees, it crosses the boundaries of discipline, specific technology, and theoretical perspective.'--Barbara Katz Rothman, Baruch College, CUNY, author of Recreating Motherhood: Ideology and Technology in a Patriarchal Society.
'A useful and accessible contribution to current debates about the connections between gender, technology and society.' New Technology, Work and Employment
'This book will be of considerable interest to anyone working in scientific and technical institutions facing difficulties, whether crises in funding or in communication between science and government, science and industry, science and the public.' The New Scientist
'A most welcome work that addresses precisely this issue of how gender can be registered as significant in the making of technologies... It is a text that will, hopefully, be widely read by undergraduate students.' Social Studies of Science
'Feminism Confronts Technology brings together an impressive array of feminist work on technology.' Arena Magazine
'Wajcman's book fills an important gap in the 'gender and technology' literature.' Feminist Review
