 Subject: [GKD] Call for Papers: Women and Digital Divide


Gender, Technology and Development seeks contributions
to a special issue on 'Women and Digital Divide'
scheduled for publication in Winter 2001. For this
special issue, we will focus on feminist analysis of
the prevailing ways in which ICTs have been
conceptualized and implemented and how they have
affected gender relations.

This issue will look at the emergence of professional
Asian women as the preferred labor force in high-tech
industries, the transformation of culturally
entrenched gender roles and relations and the
North-South distribution of power through new
communication and information technologies.

The special issue seeks essays that explore (1)
women's role in ICTs through an analysis of gender
relations and women's position in the infotech
economy; (2) the role of IT-enabled services in
influencing/changing the lives of women; and (3)
women's economic, political and social decision-making
powers in the new knowledge society.

Reports on women's communities in cyberspace and the
innovative use of technologies to transform gender
relations are welcome. Research papers that critically
examine cyberfeminism in Asian societies or the use of
Internet to perpetuate stereotyped images of women are
particularly invited.

Please send three copies of the submission by March
31, 2001 to the Editors, Gender, Technology and
Development, Gender and Development Studies, Asian
Institute of Technology, PO Box 4, Klong Luang,
Pathumthani 12120, Thailand. Email:

The manuscript should be double-spaced and printed on

the name(s) and affiliations of the author(s), their
