This study evaluates the influence of ICTs on the empowerment of women. It seeks
answer the question of whether or not ICTs are actually empowering women if so, in
What ways, if not , why. The study also sought out the forms of ICTs assessed by
women, to create a better understanding of the barriers to empowerment that
women face in ICTs and to come up with more effective solutions to overcoming
obstacles to women's empowerment through ICTs. The study shows that women are
indeed being empowered economically through computer technology, but overall
adoption of this technology is very small. There is a high lack of awareness among
women as to the potential that the technology had for improving their lives but even
those who are aware are not being empowered because of lack of time, money,
motivation or the nature of their business.
The findings indicate that there are enormous opportunities for women in internet
technology as users of the technology, participants in the civil society are consumers
of the technology. The opportunities for women's social, economic and political
empowerment through the internet are too great to be dismissed. However, this study
has recognized the disparity in connectivity between the urban and the rural dwellers,
more so between gender relationships in the production, control attitude and access
to the ICTs. In other words, the relationships of power between women on the
Internet, roles and resource allocation of the needs of the two genders is far from
being equal. It is evidently clear that most of the information circulating on the
Internet is modeled in the male view point let alone the designing of the technology
and its availability to both genders. This has caused a huge imbalance in the utilization
of this valuable resource and manipulation of the available information by the women
for their empowerment.
