Bridging Gender Digital Divide

In rural India only three in out of 10 internet users are women (IMRB’S Curb Report 2017)
India's fifth National Family Health Survey (NFHS) revealed that there is a big digital divide in the country, with rural women least likely to have internet access. Only 42% of Indian women surveyed have ever used the internet, compared with 62% of men. A large section of women do not have no or limited access to either mobile phones or computers, and this gap has widened during the COVID-19 crisis.
