How Technology Can Advance Women Economically

Technology defines our era. In the past few decades, numerous innovations—including
ever-shrinking computers, mobile phones, and alternative energies—have been introduced in homes and workplaces, changing the way we live, how we work, and what we’re able to do. International Center for Research on Women's (ICRW) white paper, Bridging the Gender Divide in Technology: How technology can advance women economically examines why technology is essential to women’s economic advancement and clarifies how it puts the process inmotion by showcasing technologies that have helped women in developing countries to increase their productivity, create new entrepreneurial ventures, or otherwise access new income-generating pursuits.
