To mark International Women's Day, USAID Administrator Mark Green and Advisor to the President, Ivanka Trump, launched USAID’s latest women’s empowerment initiative, the WomenConnect Challenge. We want to close the digital gender divide.
Today, 1.7 billion women in low and middle-income countries still do not own mobile phones, and the gap between men and women using the internet has grown steadily over the past three years.
The WomenConnect Challenge will identify and support solutions that empower women and girls via the access to and use of digital technology in order to drive positive health, education, and livelihoods outcomes for themselves and their families.
