Women's ability to take advantage of ICT is dependent on conductive policies, an enabling environment in their countries to extend communications infrastructure to where women live, and increased educational levels.
Information and communication technology (ICT) is transforming the global economy and creating new networks that stretch over continents and cultures.

However, there remain noticeable disparities as to the extend in which access and skills are available. The benefits of knowledge and technology are not available to the large majority of the world’s population. Developing countries, in failing to respond to the transformation that the development of ICT has produced, will be severely burdened when they participate in the global economy.
