Although women have been at the forefront of art and technology creation, no source has adequately documented their core contributions to the field. Women, Art, and Technology, which originated in a Leonardo project of the same name, is a compendium of the work of women artists who have played a central role in the development of new media practice.

The book includes overviews of the history and foundations of the field by, among others, artist Sheila Pinkel and Kathy Brew, artist and director of the new media initiative ThunderGulch; classic papers by women working in art and technology; papers written expressly for this book by women whose work is currently shaping and reshaping the field; and a series of critical essays that look to the future.

Among others, artist contributors include computer graphics artists Rebecca Allen and Donna Cox; video artists Dara Birnbaum, Joan Jonas, Valerie Soe, and Steina; composers Cécile Le Prado, Pauline Oliveros, and Pamela Z; interactive artists Jennifer Hall and Blyth Hazen, Agnes Hegedüs, Lynn Hershman, and Sonya Rapoport; virtual reality artists Char Davies and Brenda Laurel; net artists Anna Couey, Monika Fleischmann and Wolfgang Strauss, Nancy Paterson, and Sandy Stone; and choreographer Dawn Stoppiello. Critics include Margaret Morse, Jaishree Odin, Christiane Paul, Patric Prince, and Zoë Sofia.

Judy Malloy is an electronic fiction and Internet pioneer and editor of the electronic publication Arts Wire Current.
