One is theory, exemplified by the work of Sadie Plant and Rosi Braidotti, and in a different inflexion by Allucquère Rosanne Stone. Another is in particular kind of art practice, as, for example, that of VNS Matrix or Linda Dement. The third is in developing new modes of behaviour and understanding for women in relation to digital technology and the Internet. This is exemplified by the ‘Grrrl’ phenomenon, which proposes a Utopian model of free and liberating identity for women on the Net. Its variations include ‘webgrrls’, ‘riotgrrls’, ‘guerrilla grrls’ and so on. A fourth is the creation of on-line (and off-line) collectives or organizations, such as the Old Boy Network, FACES or Femail.
