There are several reasons why women and girls experience barriers to technology access and use around the world:
1. Gender stereotypes: Women and girls are often socialized to believe that technology is a male domain, which can discourage them from pursuing technology-related careers or interests
2. Lack of role models: Women and girls may not have access to female role models in technology, which can make it difficult for them to envision themselves in technology-related careers or pursuits.
3. Unequal access to education: Girls are less likely than boys to have access to education in many parts of the world, which can limit their opportunities to learn about and use technology.4. Economic barriers: Women and girls may not have access to the financial resources necessary to purchase technology devices or access the internet.
5. Cultural norms: In some cultures, women and girls are expected to prioritize household responsibilities over technology-related pursuits, which can limit their access to technology.
6. Lack of infrastructure: In some areas, there may be limited infrastructure for technology access, such as lack of internet connectivity or electricity, which can disproportionately affect women and girls.
