The Gendered Impacts of Information and Communication Tecnologies in Vietnam
AbstractThe social and political impacts of ICT on gender gap have been powerful. In fact, social opinion has changed much in direction in favor female members. It is easier now to elect women to public offices, and to accept women in managerial positions than ever before. However, if one leaves out the urban part of the country, ICT has had insignificant impact on women in the rest of the country. There were very limited number of examples of ICT being used to help the poor and the real effect of ICT on poverty reduction has not been statistically observed. The implication from this research does not support to the claim that the gender gap within the ICT sector had widened in Viet Nam over time. In fact, these surveys show that gender gap is narrower now than it was a few years ago.
