I found some more data on women using the Internet. The most recent Internet-usage analysis states:

"Since 1995, there has been some shift in the online community— from Phase 1 users, (users who are online primarily for work and have been using online services for years) to more casual, non-work users. Therefore, there has been a gradual demographic shift towards more females, the less educated and the less affluent getting online. For example, NNI found that 33% of online users are woman, compared to 31% a year ago. However, these shifts in no way reflect the average American family. For example, when the US Census data is compared to Nielsen's findings, there is a 116% difference in those having a college degree, and an 89% difference in households incomes over $80,000."
