Ann Marlowe :
"I had always been bemused and angered at the triviality of the view of female interests portrayed in various gender-based magazines and publications. Of course, editorial content is dictated by the products that are advertised in a publication. But how many of these are consumed along gender lines? Just clothes, makeup and personal care items. Why, I asked in some article, did a woman's magazine think I only bought those things? The change I will focus on here is the diminishing importance of gender. The web allows each of us to experience a self - built out of the bricks of individual sensibility and understanding rather than group identities of gender, class, race, religion and national origin.
