The Internet for Women
The authors set out to demystify the Internet and put it into a context that makes it relevant and accessible to as many women as possible. It is for women who are just starting to explore the possibilities of the Internet, as well as seasoned users. Technological explanations have been kept to a minimum as they are rarely necessary in order to use a particular Internet service successfully. The book contains 'how to' advice on using the most common Internet services, as well as information you will need to get Internet access. The book also covers topics not covered in more general books on the Internet: gender issues, pornography, sexual harassment, anonymity, privacy and security. To put the Internet into a more women-centred perspective the authors have included a chapter that introduces our computing foremothers and describes how some women have already begun to make the Internet an integral part of their lives.
