IWD STATEMENT 2023: TRAINING TO EMPOWER TECHNOLOGICAL INFLUENCERS
This year’s International Women’s Day is being celebrated under the theme, “DigitALL: Innovation and technology for gender equality”. New technologies provide platforms for gender champions to promote women’s issues and influence a gender-sensitive society. Even though a number of gender activists have embraced the new media platforms, to set the agenda on gender equality there are factors militating progress in this regard. Besides the high cost of data and the digital divide, gender activists need training on the use of social media platforms.
