Here is a repository of the latest research reports, policy documents, presentations, issue papers, and other relevant publications focusing on the area of ICT and gender.

This research differentiates itself because it focuses on women and policy rather than ICTs. Thus this research is about women's needs and concerns in the real (offline) world and how public information and ICTs can contribute to solutions rather than issues such as women having internet access, or studies regarding their activities on the web.
