Presentation Overview
Baby girls wear pink and baby boys wear blue. So begins the enculturation of gender. How does this gendering spread from people to things like computers and sewing machines? This seminar explores a feminist semiotic analysis of the gendering of technology and suggests why women and men should be aware of gendered effects.
