Mahiti Manthana - Reimagining a women's empowerment programme through digital technologies

This article looks back at the Mahiti Manthana project, a joint project of IT for Change and Mahila Samakhya Karnataka which explores how women's mobilisation and organising processes can be strengthened through new Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) systems. It draws conclusion about the learnings brought by the Mahiti Manthana experience, considering its meanings for development, especially in terms of negotiation of traditional gender orders in an increasingly globalised world.

This think piece was also published in Women in Action (2010, issue 1) under the title 'Digitising a Feminist Stratagem What Mahiti Manthana has taught us about women’s empowerment'.
