How would closing it impact the economy and what can policy makers, international organisations and industry players do to address it? Mobile is a key tool to drive digital inclusion, with the potential to connect women to all the benefits that the internet can offer. Particularly in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs), access to and use of a mobile can be empowering for women, making them feel safer, more connected and provides access to a range of life-enhancing information and services. But while 250 million more women have been newly connected via mobile since 2014 in LMICs, the gender gap in mobile ownership shows no sign of closing. Women are still 10% less likely than men to own a mobile, and 23% less likely to use mobile internet. Action is needed to close this gap. The Connected Women team hosted a webinar to share the key insights and recommendations from the Mobile Gender Gap Report 2019. Watch the webinar recording here and learn:
