Feminist Technologies?

“We have then four candidates for feminist technology: 1) technologies that are good for women; 2) technologies that constitute gender-equitable social relations; 3) technologies that favor women; and 4) technologies that constitute social relations that are more equitable than those that were constituted by a prior technology or than those that prevail in the wider society.” [emphasis added] Johnson, D. (2010). Sorting out the question of feminist technologies. In L. Layne, S. Vostral, and K. Boyer (Eds.). Feminist Technology. Champaign, IL: University of Illinois Press.

Discipline Effects


The first thing I want to say to you who are students, is that you cannot afford to think of being here to receive an education: you will do much better to think of being here to claim one. One of the dictionary definitions of the verb "to claim" is: to take as the rightful owner; to assert in the face of possible contradiction. "To receive" is to come into possession of: to act as receptacle or container for; to accept as authoritative or true. The difference is that between acting and being acted-upon, and for women it can literally mean the difference between life and death…. The difference between a life lived actively, and a life of passive drifting and dispersal of energies, is an immense difference. Adrienne Rich, “Claiming an Education” http://bit.ly/arich_claimit
