Combler l’écart entre les sexes pour
étendre les bénéfices socio-économiques
et culturels
Les téléphones portables sont le moyen le plus courant pour se
connecter à internet dans les pays développés. Cependant, les
femmes accusent encore un retard par rapport aux hommes
concernant à la fois la possession d’un téléphone portable et
l’utilisation de l’internet mobile. Dans les pays à faibles ou
moyens revenus, plus de 1,7 milliard de femmes ne possèdent
pas de téléphone portable. Même quand les femmes en possèdent
un, il existe un écart entre hommes et femmes pour
l’utilisation de ces dispositifs. Elles citent des obstacles
tels que le coût, la qualité du réseau et la couverture, la
sécurité et le harcèlement, la fiabilité de l’agent et de
l’opérateur, les connaissances techniques et l’aisance
d’utilisation. L’écart entre les sexes quant à la possession
et l’utilisation d’un téléphone portable est dû à un ensemble
complexe de barrières socio-économiques et culturelles qui
affectent les femmes de façon négative. Celles-ci requièrent
des interventions ciblées de la part de l’industrie de la
téléphonie mobile, des décideurs et d’autres parties prenantes
impliquées pour rétablir l’équilibre. Combler l’écart entre
les sexes quant à la possession et à l’utilisation du
téléphone portable dans les pays à faibles ou moyens revenus
pourrait libérer une opportunité de marché pour l’industrie de
la téléphonie mobile estimée à 170 milliards de dollars pour
les cinq prochaines années et contribuer à ce que 200 millions
de femmes environ puissent posséder leur propre téléphone
portable. Cela pourrait aussi générer des bénéfices socioéconomiques substantiels, y compris un meilleur accès aux
services financiers, à l’information sur la santé et aux
opportunités dans les domaines de l’éducation et de l’emploi.
Cette session mettra l’accent sur comment les efforts sont
déployés pour diminuer l’écart entre les sexes quant à la
téléphonie mobile dans les pays en voie de développement,
engendrant un énorme potentiel pour l’expansion de l’autonomie
économique, sociale et politique.
