Digital Technologies for our girls child

Usbin
Posted October 12, 2021 from Nigeria

Digital technologies are fueling explosive growth, innovation and connection around the world. But these tools are also creating new kinds of inequalities. 

Adolescent girls are less likely to use the internet; in some countries, boys use the internet at quadruple the rate of girls. Girls are also less likely than boys to own mobile phones. Some may see barriers to these technologies as protection from online predators. Yet steering girls away from digital tools only limits their access to essential information and services, and robs them of the ability to make informed decisions for themselves, their bodies and their futures.

 

Say yes to Digital Technologies
