Overview for Women Empowerment Through Information Technology

The impact of information technology on society has not been uniformly beneficial, and the technological divide is being increasingly felt, especially in the developing countries. Serious obstacles still continue in achieving gender equality Cultural attitudes and gender stereotyping are impediments in education leading to more men than women in scientific and technical careers and in decision-making positions, thus increasing gender inequity. Equal access to science is not only a social and ethical requirement for human development, but also essential for realizing the full potential of scientific programmes towards meeting the needs of humankind. Community-based women’s organizations have been instrumental in the process of enabling women to cross the so-called digital divide and become confident users of ICTs. With women’s empowerment as a key objective, they can use technology to successfully build personal confidence and self-esteem that has had wider implications in women’s lives. This book demonstrates that the holistic new ICT technologies are powerful tools for women to overcome discrimination, achieve full equality, well-being ad participation in the decisions that determine their lives and the future of their communities. It will be a highly valuable reference tool for policy makers and development leaders, so that appropriate steps can be taken to mainstream the gender dimension sin all areas of technology development, incubation and adoption.
