A Tough Call: Understanding barriers to and impacts of women’s mobile phone adoption in India

Today in India, 71% of men own mobile phones, but only 38% of women do. South Asian countries in general are clear outliers among countries of similar levels of development, with India, Pakistan, and Bangladesh exhibiting some of the world’s highest gender gaps in access to technology. While the mobile gender gap matters in its own right, it is particularly problematic because it can exacerbate other important forms of inequality — in earnings, networking opportunities, and access to information. https://egc.yale.edu/sites/default/files/2020-04/A_Tough_Call.pdf
