The rationale for the inclusion of gender among the legitimate topics of management information system (MIS) is embedded within the larger rationale for the inclusion of the human resource dimension of the MIS field. This article traces the evolution of research in the field of gender and information systems in the context of developments in shaping the twenty-first century. It begins by addressing the issue of gender being a part of our thinking about MIS. It then moves on to consider the evolution of research on gender and MIS. There is an illustration of the impact of globalization in providing impetus for the IS academy to pay greater attention to human differences and identify increased opportunities for research in relation to gender and socio-cultural differences. This article ends with some thoughts about the topic of gender and MIS in the future.
