dc.description.abstractThis paper discusses the findings from a sample of 16 full time Singaporean female homemakers from the baby boomers generation (in which 10 agreed to be interviewed and 6 filled in a questionnaire), seeking to understand the effects (cultural and social) the Internet has on this group of highly neglected users. Being full-time female homemakers, it is assumed that they only have time to surf the net when they are home alone during the day, with the children in school and husband at work. This project attempts to find out about their experiences on when they first heard about it, started learning how to navigate it and the impact(s) it has on them, primarily on the performance and negotiation of their identities and empowerment as they gain access to information and knowledge previously unattainable.en_US
