The digital revolution has brought both opportunities and challenges. The European Union’s digital agenda strategy aims to ensure that digital technologies are used to stimulate Europe’s economy and benefit citizens and businesses. However, there are several gender gaps in the digital field. Fewer women than men have access to the internet and women are also less likely to participate in ICT-related education and employment

Technology also makes it easier for women and men to participate in democratic processes. However, technology has also become a platform for new forms of harassment against women.
