Abstract

This paper questions the UK government's initiatives to solve the recognised gender divide in the use of ICT's in British Society. In doing so the paper looks to feminism and poststructuralist theory to critically analyse the problem. Poststructuralist theory is offered as a means to question the cultural norms and beliefs in UK society around the use of ICTs, Offering a possibility to challenge the current situation and therefore giving possibility for change.
