Cyberfeminism, as Wajcman writes, "emphasizes women's subjectivity and agency, and the pleasure immanent in digital technologies.
They accept that industrial technology did indeed have a patriarchal character, but insist that new digital technologies are much more diffuse and open" Wajcman similarly moves from past technologies into the present and further to future opportunities for women. Wajcman argues that "while men are ill-prepared for a postmodern future, women are ideally suited to the new technoculture" Highlighting the capabilities of women who are flexible to the changing [End Page ] systems of today, she argues that current technological workplaces may provide opportunities for women entering the workforce.
Supporting this claim, she illustrates the history of females as superior programmers, an occupation dependent on relaying information. While the author offers an intriguing examination of the gendered implications of technology, she may be oversimplifying the construct of gender by showing women as more skilled communicators and men as less skilled communicators.

Technological advances made by women and men have been improved, made useful, and will continue to be even more strongly influenced by women. The author clearly brings the complex topics of technology and feminism to a medium that will appeal to students in technology, Women's Studies, sociology, and communication. Sarah M.
