ICT & Women

Information and communication technologies (ICTs), have great potential to empower women worldwide.

Self-generated income from ICT businesses can give women greater power to close the gender wage gap, as it is a means of production that allows for some control and determination on the price that women can sell their labor.

ICT can play a critical role in making education accessible to women and girls with possible large impact on improved quality but only if other variables are in place as ICT cannot make up for all other shortcomings of development. For example, where there is extreme poverty, the cost of basic gadgets and broadband make the concept of ‘learning any-where any-time’ possible but not attainable, and largely applicable in resource abundant communities.
