Abstract

Over recent decades there have been numerous predictions of the imminent arrival of the paperless office or of telecommuting by modems, faxes and telephones. Whilst all of these phenomena have progressed to some extent — more limited than many predictions — the idea of what is "normal" has not changed. However, it may.... Women have an interest in changing the paradigm of "normal" conduct of workplace relations in a direction which creates an alternative paradigm that does not require physical propinquity. All of the technologies that I have mentioned will assist in this regard.

Keywords: paperless office, paperless technologies, telecommuting, normal, normal changing, women, workplace relations and women, modems, faxes, telephones
