Gender HCI Issues in End-User Software Engineering Environments

07081.BeckwithLaura.ExtAbstract.1076.pdf (0.2 MB)


Although gender differences in a technological world are receiving significant research attention, much of the research and practice has aimed at how society and education can impact the successes and retention of female computer science professionals. The possibility of gender issues within software, however, has received almost no attention. We hypothesize that factors within software have a strong impact on how well female problem solvers can make use of the software. Evidence from other fields and investigations of our own have revealed evidence supporting this hypothesis.
