BRIDGE Cutting Edge Packs: Gender and ICTs

Who benefits from information and communication technologies (ICTs)? ICTs have created new economic and social opportunities the world over. The positive changes brought about by ICTs, however, have not touched all of humanity. Their use continues to be governed by existing power relations where women frequently experience relative disadvantage. Amidst this inequality are individuals and organisations that are working to use these technologies to further gender equality. This Cutting Edge Pack considers the effect of ICTs on gender relations and consists of: an Overview Report outlining the main arguments and approaches in regard to gender and ICTs; a Supporting Resources Collection providing summaries of essential texts, case studies and tools, as well as a listing of key organisations; and a Gender and Development In Brief newsletter made up of three short articles on the theme.
