Women’s Rights Online Network
Tadwein for Gender Studies is a member of a multi-country network called “Women’s Rights Online”. Women’s Rights Online (WRO) is a research and advocacy network that aims to empower women through the web. The network is an initiative of the Web Foundation and currently comprises women’s rights and digital rights groups across 14 developing countries across Africa, Asia, and Latin America, working to bridge the gender gap in technology, data, and policymaking.
As part of the network activities, Tadwein for Gender Studies conducted a research study to explore Egyptian women’s Internet usage and to identify obstacles and threats they face in accessing the Internet and social media. Furthermore, Tadwein for Gender Studies contributed to the development of the Gender Digital Gap Audit report and produced a short film featuring women from urban poor communities in Cairo sharing their experience in using the internet
The outcomes of the study were publicized during the 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence campaign in December 2016.
