Employment of ICTs towards effective realisation of MDGs

Paper presented for the Commission on Social, Ethical, and Legal Issues of  the World IT Forum (WITFOR). The presentation emphasises the gender gap not just in terms of connectivity to the internet, but also access to the sophistication of ICTs. Identifying various factors detrimental to women's interests, it also critiques the closed nature of mobile platforms as well as the lack of debate around the merits of community-owned telecom networks and open platforms.
