DescriptionFrom University Video Communications' catalog:
"The world is in a period of massive transformation, truly a renaissance, in which technology will redefine cultures. After reading "The Futures of Women: Scenarios for the 21st Century" by McCorduck and Ramsey, Borg saw vividly the potential for technology to help shape a more equitable future and its equally likely potential to enable oppression and inequity. The application of technology to the lives of women is often an accident, and afterthought, or based on stereotypical assumptions without the input or anticipation of the women affected. Technology will impact women and women will impact technology. Democracy and equality in the technological future depends upon the access to technology and knowledge by the broadest possible population throughout the world."
