Gender issues in user interfaces

Gender issues in user interfaces

This video was recorded at Complex Objects Visualization Workshop, Koper 2005. Most areas of the computing sciences consider themselves to be either gender neutral or they aim at acknowledging physiologically-based differences between women and men. While the first standpoint draws on the traditional ideal of science as a rational, objective and value-free project, the second one does not refer to gender, but to sex differences – a general tendency that is supported by recent interpretations of brain research in popular media.
