Women’s rights online; Closing the digital gender gap for a more equal world

This report provides a global snapshot of the state of digital gender inequality and finds that even where women are closing the gap on basic internet access, they face a multitude of additional barriers to using the internet and fully participating online.

Based on focus groups, interviews and a survey of almost 10,000 women and men across four countries — Colombia, Ghana, Indonesia and Uganda — the report examines these digital gender inequalities, going beyond basic internet access to look also at the quality of access people have, how they use the internet, and additional barriers to access.

Report led by Chenai Chair, Ingrid Brudivg and Calum Cameron with support from Dhanaraj Thakur, Carlos Iglesias and Ana Rodriguez
