This book deals with the introduction of new technology into women's work - the impact it is making and the problems it generates. The emphasis is placed on the exploration of women's perspectives on computerization in the office and in manufacturing. Other topics dealt with include: - an analysis of the strengths and weaknesses in women's participation in systems design and in education - an examination of the concept of skills - a comprehensive introduction to the current status of remote work. Of particular interest in this volume is, therefore, the focussing of attention on women in the area of computers and new technology, covering aspects which are only rarely addressed in Computer Science literature.
