Gender and Electronic Discourse

This issue's CoverWeb presents four hypertexts, each of which considers a different aspect of the effect of electronic discourse upon gender and/or the effect of gender theory upon electronic discourse.

In addition to the four main nodes, this issue's CoverWeb offers three commentaries on the topic of Gender and Electronic Discourse: a discussion list excerpt by Cindy Wambeam, an argument that electronic discourse isn't changing gender relationships by Lisa Gerrard, and an excerpt from the introduction to Kris Blair and Pamela Takayoshi's Feminist Cyberscapes: Essays on Gender in Electronic Spaces.
