Women and ICT in Africa and the Middle East free pdf What is the link between information communication technology and women's empowerment in today's development context? How can ICT facilitate the pursuit of a better world? Exploring the rich complexity of the contexts in which they live and work, the authors of Women and ICT in Africa and the Middle East offer a multitude of perspectives and experiences, avoiding simplistic answers and solutions. Based on analyses from twenty-one research teams in fourteen countries, this much-needed, human-centred contribution to the fields of gender, development and information communication technology questions, demonstrates and suggests what it takes to wield the emancipatory potential of ICT.

Ineke was head of the Centre for Research Methodology at the Human Sciences Research Council, Pretoria, from 1991 to 1996, where she designed and facilitated South Africa's first experientially based, qualitative research education modules and provided some of the first opportunities for social science researchers of different ethnic backgrounds to learn together.

Anne's approach to feminist qualitative research brings together elements of participatory action research, socio-economic analysis and critical self-awareness.
