Women and Computers Information

This work examines women's reactions to computers and what the prospects are for women working in computing. It is based on the author's experiences during 30 years of continuous employment in computing, much of it in a university environment. The book considers women as end-users using computers for clerical and administrative work, and examines the potential of computers for domestic work in the home. It looks at the work of women and men who design the basic software to make the machines run at all and the environment in which decisions are made; this scene is examined from the point of view of the female workforce.
