 (CC) European Parliament/FlickrAhead of the international women’s day, check out the latest briefing by the European Parliament’s Research Service: “Gender equality in the EU’s digital and media sectors”.

For this year’s International Women’s Day the European Parliament is stressing the importance of the role women play in media and ICT. The media and information and communication technology (ICT) sectors are among the most competitive and influential industries in the EU and further afield. It is therefore very important that women are as equally represented as men in these sectors.

Analysis of the risks and benefits finds that new information and communication technologies can be a gateway for women and girls to access new opportunities, means of expression and participation, and a powerful tool for advancing gender equality.
