Masculinizing the Feminine: Inviting Women On Line Ca. 1997.
Warnick, Barbara
Critical Studies in Mass Communication, v16 n1 p1-19 Mar 1999
Examines how persuasive appeals to women to go online have marginalized and excluded some women. Describes how these appeals contrast with the discourse of Web sites for young women, teens, and girls that provide noncommercial forums for social support, humor, self expression, and advice. Asserts that these forums "degender" the computer by engendering new uses for computer-mediated communication. (CR)
