Executive summary

JOHANNESBURG (APC for APC WNSP) – Drawing on findings from APC’s MDG3: Take Back the Tech! project with women’s rights organisations in twelve countries in Asia, Africa and Latin America, this paper explores the links between the internet, cell phones and violence against women, illustrating that technology-related violence impacts women as seriously as other forms of violence.

‘Technology can empower women’

Staff Reporter | 2012-05-16 09:25:00
Women in Zimbabwe should use technology to empower themselves against violence, discrimination and abuse, Information Communication Technology minister Nelson Chamisa said in Harare yesterday.
Chamisa, who was speaking ahead of World Telecommunications and Information Society Day commemorations at the ZITF Grounds in Bulawayo tomorrow, said the theme for this year was Women and Girls in ICT.

“This year we are talking about women and girls. The programme will include women from different sectors. Vice-President Joice Mujuru will be the guest of honour and Deputy Prime Minister
Thokozani Khupe will deliver the keynote address,” Chamisa said.

“This is very important for us as a country because we have made strides in the ICT sector and we want to use this to afford women an opportunity in decision-
making.”
