Abstract [en]

Is digital creativity affected by gender norms? This paper aims to investigate girls as creative developers of the Internet and new technology. Information has been collected through interviews with female students, artists, project managers and entrepreneurs. As the investigation of digital creativity and gender has progressed, a hypothesis has emerged, namely that girls frequently have an aesthetic approach to new technology. Girls choose to learn some new technology because they want to use the technology in order to achieve something else, and their goal often have aesthetic preferences. The issue of girls learning technology, becoming technical, is clearly more complicated than one might first think in relation to gender norms. Expressions of technical knowhow or innovation that are not in line with the predominant male norm easily become invisible. Creative girls who undergo education within the digital field can easily end up in a situation where they must first work with equality and become entrepreneurs in order to have a chance to practice their profession.
