Women and Information Technology in the Philippines

If there's one thing that I can always be proud of whenever I speak at international conferences, it is that women's access to the Internet is not as bad compared to other countries. We have access to these technologies and opportunities. What limits women is their resources and appreciation of this technology.

But you might ask, is there really a gender divide when it comes to ICT in our countries? Answering such question can be very subjective for it is up to the capacity of every woman, income-wise and opportunity. Should you want to learn more, I suggest that you download this report, "Gender, Information Technology and Developing Countries: An Analytical Study".
