Hello and welcome!
Our topic today is Keeping Women and Girls from Social Media. Digital technology, especially the internet, has changed the lives of millions across the globe. But, in some countries, women and girls’s access to technology is limited. And, sometimes, they are even prevented from accessing technology.
Studies by the Centre for Information Technology and Development in Kano have shown that, in northern Nigeria, about 60% of women do not have access to the internet.
About 55% of men in the area do not allow their wives to use the internet. And 61% of fathers discourage their daughters from using social media.
