Women in Politics fostering Digital Inclusion

Women are 12% less likely to use the internet globally than men. In low and middle-income countries, the gap between women’s use and that of men even widens to 26%. Most pronounced becomes this digital divide in LDCs, where women are 33% less likely than men to use the internet. These digital inequalities matter particularly as digital technologies, including the internet, are having increasingly profound impacts also on other aspects of economy, society and culture. Any action to enhance digital equality therefore has not only important positive impacts on gender equality in general but also contributes to the development of societies. In order to enhance women’s equality and empowerment through digital inclusion all stakeholders need to work together in order to foster skills and education, to provide connectivity, and to create adequate policy frameworks.
