This is the first book collection to devote itself exclusively to issues related to women's lives in a culture of technology. As such, it is a key addition to feminist new media scholarship in computers and composition. The book holds special appeal as the editors have put into conversation chapters of authors from diverse disciplines. The value that is placed on cross-disciplinary work is further demonstrated in the mix of theoretical, pedagogical, and rhetorical research that enriches the book in its entirety. To explore the variety of cyberfeminist webs, the collection has been organized around three themes. Chapters in 'Forming Virtual Kinships' examine cyberfeminist practices that do not neatly operate in standard academic communities such as classrooms or cultural centers, instead foregrounding the extent to which female communities evolve around aspects of women's daily lives as mothers, consumers, and workers. Chapters in 'Redrawing Academic Boundaries' offer a glimpse of practice within more defined pedagogical spaces, providing a sense of the ways in which classroom and community network boundaries are often blurred and disrupted. Last, the text moves to explore how cyberfeminist webs both on the beyond the borders of standard spaces are developed using a variety of theoretical standpoints.
