"... discusses the complex connections between gender and technology... an intriguing and enlightening book, the latest in an outstanding... series by Indiana University Press." —Bruce Hilton, Scripps Howard News Service

How does technology influence gender roles? From personal computers and cyberspace to artificial wombs and sex reassignment surgery, technology has opened up the possibility that sex roles as well as the gendered notions we have of human identity are subject to radical change. This engaging anthology examines long-standing stereotypical associations of men with technology and women with nature and assesses the impact of technologies that have necessarily blurred distinctions between the sexes and altered traditional views of gender.
