Girls and women of several countries are facing structural barriers. It limits their ability to participate in society on the same level as their men.

Globally more than 50% of women are victims of misbehavior. Not allowed to present themselves in front of the whole world which leads to a lack of confidence in them.

Lack of awareness is the main reason for not being able to raise their voice using the latest technology. Women were confined to traditional roles and limited to access the capital, training, and technology that could enrich their lives.

Looking at the condition of women in many countries becomes necessary to give them moral support. Help them in reaching technology which will ensure a better living for the rest of life. Although we have come a long way for women’s empowerment still many women are not aware of the technologies.

Technology and Women

Technology plays a large part in cementing gender inequality especially in developing counties.

But now also in some countries women do not have access to phones and ratios and are unaware of information. If women start gaining their knowledge of technology and its uses, they can become a helping hand for their families. Many companies have started employing female employees because they have creative ideas and plans to run the company. Despite women empowerment being in its nascent stage currently, the tech industry is an extremely lucrative industry for women.

If you’re looking for an industry with lots of opportunities, tech is the way to go. Women taking up jobs in the tech industry will be a channel to bridge the gender gap for this industry.

In today’s keyed-up industry, tech opportunities are not only limited to coding but have also extended to software engineering, cybersecurity, network administration, design, data analytics, and much more.
