This collection of papers comes from a seminar organized by IT for Change in April 2005. The impetus for the seminar came from the pressing need to engender the emerging policy discussion spaces concerning the information society, specifically the World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS), with feminist perspectives that are rooted in Southern realities.
The papers represent a broad variety of issues and perspectives that are implicated in the wide, and still not well-articulated, arena of gender concerns in the information society. It is structured in four parts: Gender at WSIS, Gender Perspectives on ICT4D, Women and Media in the Information Society, and Reflections on the Seminar.
