The focus in this guide is the thematic area of digital inclusion, an area in which gender analysis has been less widely implemented than in some other sectors. Research reveals that despite unprecedented advances in digital technologies, women across the world continue to face unique barriers that prevent them from fully benefiting from digital inclusion. This is cause for major issues of concern since digital platforms, mobile phones and digital financial services are widely used and provide unique opportunities for women’s economic empowerment and political participation.
