In this cutting-edge anthology, contributors examine the diverse ways in which girls and young women across a variety of ethnic, socio-economic, and national backgrounds are incorporating and making sense of digital technology in their everyday lives. Contributors explore issues of gender, identity, access to technologies, social and parental regulation, and cultural issues allowing cell phones, blogging, the production and consumption of websites, social networking and gaming to take on new significance in current theories, public discourse, and policy issues. The voice of youth culture resonates throughout the book as they adapt, adopt, and blend new technologies, providing valuable insight into their experience and challenging some currently held notions
