She describes the process of designing and building cyberfeminist webs for South Asian womens communities, the generation of feminist cyber(auto)ethnographies, and offers a third-world critique of cyberfeminism.

She ultimately views virtual communities as imbedded in real life communities and contexts, with human costs. The online discussions are visible, textual records of the discourses that circulate within real life communities.

Her methodology involves a form of cyberethnography, which explores the dialogic and disruptive possibilities of the virtual medium and of hypertext. Gajjalas work addresses the political, economic, and cultural ramifications of the Internet communication explosion. This book will be a valuable reference for those with an interest in cultural studies, feminist studies, and new technologies
