About this book

This book brings feminist philosophy, in the shape of feminist ethics, politics and legal theory, to an analysis of computer ethics problems including hacking, privacy, surveillance, cyberstalking and Internet dating. Adam claims that these issues cannot be properly understood unless we see them as problems relating to gender. For the first time, these issues are put under the feminist spotlight to show that traditional responses reproduce the public/private split which has so often reinforced the causes of women's oppression.

Reviews

'This book is highly recommended for those involved in computer ethics, both academics and practitioners, and also those involved with the social studies of science and technology more generally. However, it also deserves a much wider audience of those concerned with the continuing ubiquity of gendered inequalities.' - David Sanford Horner, Information, Communication& Society
