Role of Information and Communication Technology in Women Empowerment by Shikha Mathur Kumar from Kalpaz Publications.
With the opening up of Indian economy and the liberalisation of markets in 1990, information and communication (ICT) has emerged as a key driver of economic and social development in India touching the lives of men and women in difference ways. This book attempts to examine the role of ICT in empowering women in India, particularly belonging to Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes and minority community.
Providing a national perspective of macro issues in gender growth and development, it presents a critical analysis of the role of ICT in the development of embroidery sector dominated by marginalised workers from Dalit and Muslim communities in National Capital region.
