Access for women leads to opportunity for all.
More than half of all women still lack access to the online world.
That’s one in two prevented from doing things we often take for granted - like checking tomorrow’s weather, learning a new skill or just exploring what they want, when they want.
We know when women realize the benefits of information, they create opportunities and fuel prosperity not just for themselves, but for their families, communities, and society. According to research from the UN, when women have access to the internet it leads to a significant economic benefits and breaks cycles of poverty.
We started Womenwill to help erase gender gaps by connecting women to the online world and giving them the tools to make the most of it. We develop and support programs for women across the digital literacy spectrum, from training Internet Saathis in India to help women in rural villages get online to Happy Back to Work in Japan, and our partnerships with groups like UN Women, Word Pulse and the Global Fund for Women.
