Drawing on in-country qualitative research, this study explores the specific incentives, challenges, preferences and benefits that women and girls will encounter, compared to men, when engaging with digital identity systems or services.

The report identifies how both men and women navigate day-to-day identity-related pain points, as well as the short- and long-term incentives that influence their decision to access and use identity documents and identity-linked services. It also highlights women’s perspectives on digital identity services, and the role that mobile technology could play to help address the identity gap.
