Abstract

"Despite the presence of the first African American in America’s highest political position, this success does not necessarily cross gender and/or social class boundaries. Importantly, women of color are less likely to enter technology fields than White females (see Goode & Margolis, 2004; Margolis & Fisher, 2003; NSF, 2006) To explain this phenomenon requires consideration of how a girl’s race, gender, social class, context, and community involvement work together to create their real-time and virtual experiences with digital media.
