Digital Gender Equality

What is it?

The resource highlights the digital gender gap among forcibly displaced women and girls, attributing it to a variety of factors such as limited access, affordability, harmful sociocultural norms, and exposure to digital risks, hindering their participation in a connected society. Key findings include:

  • Forcibly displaced women and girls face challenges accessing technology due to policy barriers, limited infrastructure, affordability issues, and harmful sociocultural norms.
  • The lack of digital literacy and skills among displaced women exacerbates their vulnerability to digital risks, including online gender-based violence and financial exploitation.
  • Initiatives such as digital literacy workshops, community-led internet networks, and innovative projects promoting digital livelihoods aim to bridge the digital gender gap and empower forcibly displaced women and girls in the digital age.
