While cybergrrls sometimes draw (whether consciously or unconsciously) on feminist analyses of popular representations of women--and on the strategies and work of many feminist artists--they also often uncritically recirculate and re-present sexist and stereotyped images of women from popular media--the buxom gun moll; the supersexed cyborg femme; the 50's tupperware cartoon women, are favorites--without any analysis or critical recontextualization.

It is a revolt of the chattels."        Caroline Bassett, With a little help from Our (New) Friends?During the recent Cyberfeminist International (CI) meetings at Documenta X in Kassel, Germany (1), much discussion centered on whether or not there should--or could--be a definition of cyberfeminism.It is tempting to point the finger at educational systems and institutions which still treat the histories of women, minoritarian, and marginalized populations as ancillary to "regular" history, relegating them to specialized courses or departments.In the US, young women entering college often blithely claim equality with men declaring that feminism isn't needed anymore--in complete disregard of the fact that the very structures of the institutions are masculinist; that what counts as the main body of knowledge to be conveyed is still almost entirely white, male, and western European; that the new technology departments springing up everywhere are heavily male dominated (2); and that women professors still are less likely to be tenured, tenure-track, or full-time, and often still make less than male professors at comparable ranks.Cybergrrl-ism generally seems to subscribe to a certain amount of net utopianism--an "anything you wanna be and do in cyberspace is cool" attitude.

Despite the gripings against men in general--and technogeeks in particular--which pervade some of the discussions and sites, most cybergrrls don't seem interested in engaging in a political critique of women's position on the Net--they'd rather "just do it", and adopt the somewhat anti-theory attitude which seems to prevail currently.By looking more closely at the reasons put forth against defining cyberfeminism, and their implications, and by offering some possible definitions of cyberfeminism, I hope to suggest how such a politics might be translated into practice.The impetus for this essay springs from the experience of eight days of intense daily living and working with almost forty women participants of the 1st Cyberfeminist International.The repudiation of historical feminism is problematic because it throws out the baby with the bathwater and aligns itself uneasily with popular fears, stereotypes, and misconceptions about feminism.Why is it that so many younger women (and men) know so little about even very recent histories of women, not to speak of past feminist movements and philosophies?Commodity culture is forever young and makes even the recent past appear remote and mythic.
