Women and Technology

ICRW has begun to analyze how certain types of technology can enable women to develop their economic potential, become stronger leaders and to more effectively contribute to their families, communities and local economies. Specifically, we’ve found that various technologies can help women increase their productivity as well as launch income-generating pursuits and entrepreneurial ventures.

Our first report on the issue, Bridging the Gender Divide: How Technology Can Advance Women Economically, released in 2010, highlights such technological initiatives. It also offers innovators practical recommendations on how to design and implement technologies for women.
