New Report Highlights Internet’s Benefits for Women

Numerous studies have concluded broadband is positioned to empower individual users and serve as the basis for fundamentally realigning whole industries. What is notable among all of these important and valuable studies is the lack of a specific focus on how broadband will impact women.

A new report, Winning the Future: A Policy Framework for Empowering Women with Broadband, a joint effort of the National Foundation for Women Legislators (NFWL) and the National Organization of Black Elected Legislative Women (NOBEL/Women), examines the importance of broadband to women by highlighting how women are using this technology to enhance family life, improve health outcomes, bolster their family's education, and pursue an array of economic opportunities.

On Wednesday, March 9, 2011, NFWL and NOBEL/Women representatives discussed how women are using Internet technologies and what steps policymakers should take to ensure women are able to reap the wide array of benefits enabled by broadband.  Go here to listen to the audio.
