Women and girls are still lagging far behind their male peers in the digital realm, according to a new report launched today under the EQUALS Partnership. The report, Taking Stock: Data and Evidence on Gender Equality in Digital Access, Skills and Leadership, highlights the implications of persistent gaps across different facets of digital technologies. It also presents a compilation of case studies written by more than 25 leading experts and researchers that tell the story of how technology impacts women and girls in various contexts, including jobs and wages, security and privacy, cyber threats, and new technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI).
