Abstract

Indian civilisation is male-dominated, and women's efforts were disregarded. ICT has brought a glimpse of hope and a wealth of viable answers to this imbalance, which is why women's empowerment has been prioritised. ICT can boost gender equality. Digital technology can help eliminate gender gaps by boosting access to welfare, ID, financial services, and information. Technology can remove many of the obstacles women encounter, opening up new economic options and allowing them to join the workforce, improving their future. Digital technology has impacted how we organize, the strategies we use, breaking down boundaries, eroding state power, producing information, and developing unfathomable solidarity networks. Digital revolution changes how people live, work, and interact. Globally, gender equality is important. ICTs have added additional dimensions. ICTs improve service delivery, government, and poor populations' opportunities. Gender-neutral ICT policy can boost women's employment. SDG 5 aspires to increase the use of ICTs to achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls. ICTs are continuing to change the way we live and work. For women, girls, and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, using technology to advance gender equality and women's empowerment is critical. This article examines ICT-enabled networking for gender equality. It also discusses policy framework for gender equality through ICT and goes on to suggest ways to improve the conditions leading to Gender equality.
