Despite global recognition of the importance of digital inclusion to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals, one third of the world’s population – mostly women – remained offline at the close of 2023. At the same time, as more women are brought online, we must ensure that women’s inclusion in the digital ecosystem is safe, secure, accessible, and equitable.

The gender digital divide has a direct and negative impact on global development and the goal of creating inclusive global societies and economies. It also emphasizes the need to recommit and strengthen efforts that bring together two powerful forces for global change: women and digital technology.
