• Figures & tables are each to be numbered sequentially (e.g. Fig 1, Table 1) and captioned at the top. • Use APA 6th edition style for references.
* Men design computers and programming for men and this draws more men into the technology field to design more programs for men. Even electronic gadgetry favors men’s needs, as is confirmed by the many women who complain about the size, shape and mechanics of the pager. As one female executive puts it, “Bulky pagers in the breast pocket or hanging on the belt just doesn’t work for women.” * Sherry Turkle, professor of sociology at MIT and co-chair of the commission says, “Instead of trying to make girls fit into the existing computer culture, the computer culture must become more inviting for girls.” * http://www.matilijapress.com/articles/womenintechnology.htm...
