World Computer Literacy Day – 2nd December

Digital technology has changed the world. Particularly in the last 20 years, digital advances have enhanced social and business connectivity offered tech-based solutions for financial inclusion and increased access to trade and public services. But the International Telecommunications Union (ITU) reports that more than 50% of the world’s women are offline.

This phenomenon is often referred to as the gender digital divide, which describes ways in which gender inequality in the physical world is replicated in the digital world. This translates into large gaps in women’s and girls’ digital adoption, access and meaningful use compared to men and boys.
Every year, on 2nd December World Computer Literacy Day, is celebrated.

The LAB4GE partners would like to mark this day and raise awareness of this important issue. We hope that we all can find a way to start paying more attention to gender equality in computer literacy.
