Abstract
The Web has been pitched to us as the ultimate egalitarian utopia. At the same time, newspapers talk about &quot;road kill&quot; on the information highway. Women especially have been counted among those lost in cyberspace. But even if the vision of the Internet as genderless utopia were true, it has troubling implications. Nevertheless, theoretical critiques of Web culture take us only so far. Ad campaigns aside, there <em>are</em> genders on the Internet. What do women on the Web - &quot;wired women&quot; - themselves say about their experiences of gender and embodiment? And what might we imagine to be the theological significance of these gendered bodies in cyberspace?
