This volume contains selected papers from the Seventh International Conference on Women, Work and Computerization (WWC 2000), which provides an interdisciplinary forum for researchers, practitioners and users in the field of information technology. The conference was sponsored by the International Federation for Information Processing (IFIP) and was held in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, in June 2000. Generous support for the publication of the proceedings was provided by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada.In this book, the authors discuss how different areas of society are being transformed by computer technology. Authors have placed particular emphasis on women's experiences as computer scientists, and the mechanisms through which approaches to system design and, system design methodologies contribute to the gendered nature of computing. Other areas of emphasis include gender differences in computer use, the use of computers in everyday life, and discussions about the use of computers to promote citizenship. With the move of computers progressively into our homes, authors have increasingly looked at the use of computers to work, and learn, from home.
