Saying no to a hand-me-down information society - The digital gap, gender and development

Prepared for the International Know How Conference (Mexico, 2006), this presentation details innovative directions for the discourse on development and women’s rights.

It suggests that the digital gender gap is seen at its widest in feminist silences in public discourse on alternative visions for the information society and absence in policy corridors at global and national levels. Within the present political context, access in the information society does not imply equal participation in the information society; it is a privilege that is paid for, to avoid being pushed to the periphery.
