With the growth of mobile phone technology and accessibility, women in Africa are embracing empowerment by being more connected to the digital world, but there’s still much work to be done.
“Today, we see mobile phones as a great way of communicating instantly with friends and family or business contacts. But for many people around the globe, especially women in emerging economies, owning a mobile phone has had a transformative impact on everyday life. From Bangladesh to Botswana, women in the developing world are using mobile phones as a gateway to financial independence, employment, better family health and education. As we recognize International Women’s Day, it is critical that the mobile industry pledges to sensitize more women to the transformative potential of digital technology.”
