REVIEW OF GENDER AND ICTS
A message from Sarah M. Murray, asking you for your stories, suggestions and recommendations to conduct an up to date review of women's uses of ICTs in the field, to make a case for why integrating gender in ICT programs (policies and projects) is critical for their success, what the main gender and ICT issues and experiences are, and how to address these in policy, program and project design. To do this, they are looking for a wide range of examples, references and descriptions of successful policies, projects, pilots and/or experiments where women use ICTs and how these policies/projects impact their economic, social and political welfare. In particular they are focusing on examples on: E-government services for women, and used by women; IT/IT-enabled services industry and impact on women's employment, self-employment and income opportunities; Access to broadband by women and impact on their education/literacy, economic opportunities and poverty reduction; Access to information and knowledge in rural areas and specific impact on women's social and political participation; Women's role in extending ICT access and services. Please contact sarah@networkedintelligence.com if you have information relating to the focus areas that you think should be included in this review.
