This paper reports êndings of a study undertaken in late 1999 which aimed to identify and analyse the differences in use, by gender, of the Internet. A review of the literature of the differences in use, by gender, of computers generally is provided. The study involved students at Loughborough University and members of the public at libraries in Loughborough and Slough. The results of this (fairly limited) study show that female use, interest and conêdence in using the Internet is high but, in comparison with male respondents the females had not taken to the Internet as rapidly.
