THE NIGERIAN WOMAN: WHAT IT WILL TAKE FOR WOMEN IN THE RURAL AREAS TO BENEFIT FROM EVERYTHING THE INTERNET HAS TO OFFER.
The internet is a tool of empowerment which provides men and women, old and young access to a world of networks, communities, health education, information, financial advice and business skills training.
The growing access of the internet has allowed people especially women to empower themselves by using various tools on the web. With the easy accessibility of buying and selling, e-learning etc, women can now study, and transact businesses from the comfort of their homes anywhere, anytime and thus empowering themselves financially and educationally through new technologies; and learning new skills which come in handy in today's globalized village.
It will be practically impossible to talk about this subject matter without first all looking into the thought provoking challenges women in Nigeria rural areas globally face in the world of ICT.
I will also highlight what it will take for them to benefit from all what the internet offers.
