Digital India: Whose India? Whose agenda?

IT for Change was invited to be a part of the panel on 'Gendering Global Media Policy: Critical Perspectives on Digital Agendas', at IAMCR 2015, held between July 12-16, in Montreal, Canada. Our panel presentation critiqued the flagship 'Digital India' programme launched by the Government of India in early 2015, demonstrating how the state's digital agenda creates new versions of patriarchy, through carefully managed assertions and erasures – and reduces women's digital empowerment to to a depoliticised idea of access.
