According to sources a new report by GSM Association (GSMA) said Women in India are 28% less likely than men to own a mobile phone and 56% less likely than men to use mobile Internet. Meanwhile across all low and middle income countries, 80% of women are mobile owners while in India, only 59% use mobile phones, representing some of the largest mobile gender gaps in the world, said the report by GSMA, a trade body that represents the interests of mobile network operators globally.
Meanwhile Mats Granryd, Director General, GSMA, said in a statement "We are seeing significantly increased mobile access for women. However, in an increasingly connected world, women are still being left behind". Reportedly GSMA's "2019 Mobile Gender Gap Report", just 42% of women in India is aware of the Internet, and that it can be used on a mobile phone. Furthermore this is an increase from a meager 19% among women in India in 2017.
Granryd added "While mobile connectivity is spreading quickly, it is not spreading equally. Unequal access to mobile technology threatens to exacerbate the inequalities women already experience". Moreover 80% women in low and middle income countries are now mobile owners globally and mobile phone is the primary means of Internet access in these markets, where 48% of women use mobile to get online.
