Bridging the gender digital divide
Technology and innovation are advancing so quickly that what is true today is soon outdated. This is why we must have an ongoing conversation with girls to collect accurate and close to real-time insights into their lives.
As societies look to build back better, with a focus on a more digitally equitable world, we need to rebuild with girls. The Girls & Mobile 2.0 study is the first step in understanding the reality of girls’ digital worlds, and will be the catalyst for more regular, close to real-time monitoring of the when, where and how girls are connecting and the challenges and opportunities they face.
These insights must inform how we respond and co-create the solutions girls want and need, to close the gender data gap and bridge the gender digital divide.

This is part of a wider commitment to Generation Equality on “Girls and Young Women-Designed Learning Solutions Fit for Their Digital World”, made alongside Chloé, Clé de Peu Beauté, Girl Effect, Microsoft, Pandora, UNICEF, Unilever Dove, Vodafone Americas Foundation.
