Information and Communication Technologies as a Tool for Women's Empowerment and Social Transformation in Africa
This article considers how critical issues around Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs), such as access, policy and rights, have affected "development" in Africa. My focus on access to computers and the Internet draws attention to how many African women have advanced their interests through ICTs, and to obstacles remain in making ICTs meaningful tools for the women of Africa. As an ICT practitioner engaged in gender work in Africa, I will take stock of the achievements and challenges that individual women, women's organisations and networks in Africa have faced in using ICTs for their empowerment.
