Lisa King , the president of DC Web Women, discusses gender in online communities, which she distinguishes from public or semi-public discussion groups. Virginia Eubanks , editor of the cyberfeminist 'zine Brillo, begins with the claim that the Internet is "actively and aggressively hostile to women" and discusses her successes challenging the "paradigms that actively exclude white women and people of color". Information scientist Elizabeth Buchanan examines the representations of women in video games, finding that they are "victims, vixens, or invisible". The importance of women's being involved in the creation of both technology and the rules governing technology is argued by Alison Adam and Karen Coyle. Alison Adam , a computer scientist and author, contends that "bringing feminist ethics to bear on computer ethics offers a novel and fruitful alternative to current directions in computer ethics."

Betty Friedan A interview by Tom Knapp about the state of the women's movement. http://www.rambles.net/friedan_gender.html
Extractions: All issues are women's issues. All women's issues are men's issues. The barriers which once separated the feminist movement and the male hierarchy are falling. Betty Friedan, a founder of the women's movement in the 1960s, said the battle no longer belongs in the bedroom. "We must get to the roots of the problem," she said. "I am tired of marching to take back the night." Friedan, whose book The Feminine Mystique is credited with starting the modern women's movement 30 years ago, delivered a highly charged, highly political talk at Millersville (Pa.) University, where Friedan's energetic and rambling speech followed a ribbon-cutting ceremony opening the MU Women's Center. Key issues facing women today include child care, health care, gun control and the economy, Friedan said. "If we cannot solve some of these problems, women's rights will not survive," she said. "One good child care center in a community is worth 10, 100 marches and slogans." Friedan said the women's movement is at a "critical time." Although she congratulated Millersville on its progress, she said, "I hope you won't waste a lot of time meandering in the rhetoric of 20 years ago. In the last few years, it seems to me that the women's movement has undergone a transformation, sort of a paradigm shift that we're not all quite aware of yet. We can stop wallowing in the victim stage."

Search Agnosticism / Atheism Gender Selection Should parents be able to select the gender of their child? Would it be ethical for people with fertility problems to choose which fertilized embryos get implanted and have the rest discarded as being the "wrong" gender? According to the American Society for Reproductive Medicine, a group which establishes ethical guidelines for fertility clinics, the answers to those question is "Yes." Many fertility specialists around the country were shocked to hear this announcement, released in a letter written by John Robertson, an ethicist and lawyer at the University of Texas who is currently the acting head of the organization. Some, however, will be offering the service immediately and report having received many requests for it over the years. This position does not quite represent a decision by the ethics committee of the group, because the group was unable to meet in September because of the terrorist attacks in New York City and Washington D.C. Robertson did, however, say that he consulted with others and felt that the letter reflected the group's position. The previous position of the group, decided in 1999, was that such selection "should be discouraged."
