Advancing Rural Women's Empowerment: ICTs in the Service of Good Governance, Democratic Practice and Development for Rural Women in Africa

Dimitra/Women'sNet Regional Workshop in Johannesburg (South Africa), 23-25 February 2004

This workshop provided a space to talk and share experiences of how Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) can be used by organisations in different African contexts. Participants considered the use and utility of ICTs in several areas of life: their role in facilitating rural and disadvantaged women's participation in public debates on issues that affect them. These include how ICTs can address everyday challenges facing many rural women, such as food security, conflict situations, drought, land, health, economic wellbeing, etc. and how rural women can use ICTs to overcome obstacles to accessing information.

For more information on the Workshop's programme and presentations, please see the Workshop Reports section.
