Web development and mobile Application program

ICTs have profound effects on economic development and globalization, there is a dire need of gender perspective in these to make sure that people of different gender, socio-economic classes, races and walks can reap benefits from ICTs equally Furthermore  women  tend to believe ICTs to be more of an area best suitable for men. Young women are not encouraged to take up science and technology related subjects in schools and they feel this would be an area in which they cannot excel. Percentage of female students in ICT related fields of studies in college and university education in some countries is very minimal , Similarly women  are less acquainted with the economic, social and psychological gain of the full range of opportunities afforded by ICTs.
