Hacking Gender Inequality

Owning a mobile phone and having access to the internet can change lives. Yet millions of women in developing countries are unable to take advantage of the mobile internet. The main reasons for this are lack of literacy and digital skills.

Together, we can change this. Open Source for Equality is a global initiative to promote the development and use of free and open software that bridges the digital gender gap.
