"Judith Allen has noted that at the very least, the writing of women's historical experience can never really be just a matter of putting women back, "as if they [had] somehow slipped out."

“The updated version of cyberfeminism is more about networking, webgrrrls,

making money, doing business and doing deals. It's embracing diversity and
difference, being opinionated, being loud and at times staying quiet. But
the key to all of this is information, in the information society, to get
ahead you must control the commodity. Information is political, it's a
weapon, and the more knowledge we have, the more powerful we are.”
