Girl Effect launches new study to understand the realities of the gender digital divide among adolescents

The world has made progress in terms of increasing digital access, but there are significant challenges to overcome to ensure that women and girls are included in this journey.

Girl Effect is undertaking a new study – Girls and Mobile 2.0 – in partnership with UNICEF and Vodafone Americas Foundation to build a deeper understanding of the gender digital divide among adolescents in a COVID-19 world.

Launching in 2021, the research will build on Girl Effect’s first-of-its-kind global study with Vodafone Foundation from 2018, looking at girls’ access to and use of mobile. The study will look at the impact of the online world on girls’ sense of self-esteem and mental wellbeing, amongst other aims, and provide new and unique insights that will help bridge the gender data gap. The study will be published in late 2022.
