LISTEN: Communication Rights for Women - Why the Purse feels empty? Role of ICTs in securing funds for women's groups [part 4]

Mavic Cabrera-Balleza, a senior program associate in the International Women's Tribune Centre, looks at the role of ICTs in supporting women's groups efforts to secure funding at the panel, “Communication Rights for Women - Why the Purse feels empty?: Financing for women's equitable access to Information and Communication Technologies”. This panel was organised by APC WRP, UN DAW and IWTC during the 52nd session of the Commission on the Status of Women in New York in February 2008.
Mavic elaborates on potential impact of ICT on fundraising strategies. She highlights the fact that online presence is an increasingly critical factor for accountability in accessing funding, but many women's groups lack the capacity and resources to keep their website up to date. In this context, Mavic considers increased funding for critical voices and content development as highly important.
