1.  NEW HIGHLIGHT: "Cinderella or Cyberella?"  Empowering Women in the
Knowledge Society
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(This collection of essays has been collected and edited by Nancy
J.Hafkin and Sophia Huyer, and published by the Kumarian Press, June 2006).

Cinderella or Cyberella: what is the future for women in the knowledge
society? Cyberella is fluent in the uses of technology, comfortable
using and designing computer technology, and working in virtual spaces.
Cinderella works in the basement of the knowledge society with little
opportunity to reap its benefits. Cyberellas in countries around the world
are using ICTs in creative ways to improve their lives: Women mobile
phone operators in Bangladesh help other women get information on
registering their land, opening a business, or obtaining a tax certificate.
Poor women in Guatemala are learning to repair computers and set up their
own ICT-enabled businesses. Teenage girls in Mauritania are using ICTs
to information information about sexuality and HIV/AIDS that their
society will not discuss. All of these women are Cyberellas who are finding
and using information and technologies that were previously
inaccessible to them.

As the world is spinning in an orbit increasingly shared by knowledge
and technology, women to benefit from it equally and participate in it
actively from positions of independence, choice, capabilities, and
action. This book looks at how ICTs can be important tools for gender
equality and women's empowerment in both society and work, particularly for
poor women in developing countries. The focus is not on technology but
rather on women's empowerment in the context of a gendered world and how
ICTs can make the most effective contributions to it. The book looks at
women's social and economic empowerment as supported by ICTs and based
in gender and development theory. To arrive at full empowerment in the
knowledge society, Cinderella needs to become Cyberella. Each essay in
the collection depicts ways in ICTs provide opportunities for women to
improve their incomes, gain awareness of their rights, and improve
their own and their families' well-being. Illustrative case studies from
Africa, Asia and Latin America, show the global possibilities for women's
empowerment through ICTs.
