English abstract

Author reflects in this paper author's experience in projects in which women should have a better access and free use of modern technology in their artistic and cultural work . Author especially emphasize harsh prejudices and practises that some women faced in schools, theatre, various visual and performing arts. It is shown in this text that women are due to cultural and other prejudices oppressed and prevented if not being encouraged to have equal access and use of modern technology in arts, university, schools and other environments. However, women are according to author's experience preferred by men to conduct administrative and “taking care” tasks. From the author's point of view such division is reflection of traditional divisions of labor in patriarchal family that are still predominant in many environments causing harm to our societies, education, science, arts and culture. Cases described in this text are cases from author's experience and explanations do not tend to be grounded in any psychological, sociological or aesthetic theory. Author, intentionally, does not write about positive experience since they of ten serve as a reason why we should take less seriously into consideration negative experiences.
