Subject: Abstract, Cyberfeminism

Dear Fay:  Here's my abstract.  Please feel free to edit as you see fit! 
I assume that as it comes closer to the conference date, we will
communicate more thoroughly as regards to how we all will go about
presenting on this panel?  Thanks!

My Topic:

"Cyberfeminism/genderism . . .For Whom?"

 With the advent of increasingly sophisticated means of communication via
the Internet and email, it would make sense that feminist-centerd human
rights groups take advantage of the new " Cyberfeminism/genderism" as a
means of spreading awareness of various issues on a global scale.  While
instant access to sources and information helpful to feminists can be
perceived as a blessing, I would like to explore the issue of privilege
and accessibility.  For not to be ignored is the fact there are many
women unable to have access to cyberspace sources.  In other words,
inclusive of "cyberfeminism/genderism" there should be a look into
exactly "who" can/has access, and what about the women who cannot/do not
have access.
