  E-Democracy Friday 10 May 2002  
The UK should be the first country to hold its general elections on line according to Robin Cook, the government minister in charge of modernising our political life.

But one Labour MP is worried that this political revolution may leave women behind. Margaret Moran has just written a paper called E Democracy or He Democracy? . She believes that the government should use the internet to consult women, to reconnect with their lives.
Martha asks Margaret Moran and journalist Joan Burnie whether e-democracy really is the answer to the huge problem of political alienation?
