Gender/Technology/Development Bibliography

Query From Jesse Bump 29 May 1997

any assistance with this query will be greatly appreciated. I'm trying to generate a small bibliography on knowledge and gender that includes scholarship that concerns the following areas:

  1. Technology transfer
  2. Domestic technology
  3. International development

Even (especially!) basic references are welcome as I am unfamiliar with this literature. Please accept my thanks in advance.
