Submission to the OHCHR Call on Ways to Bridge the Gender Digital Divide From a Human Rights Perspective

This submission addresses: 1) the conditions that favour the development of a gender digital divide; 2) the impact of such divide on women’s human rights; and 3) the human rights framework relevant to addressing the gender digital divide. The main focus of the present submission is on the impact of the digital divide on women, with additional consideration given to implications for LGBTI persons.
