New question arises on equality of men and women in Asian countries especially in India, Bangladesh and Pakistan. According to survey in Pakistan A lot of women even in great majority doesn’t know how to use cellphone or internet. They have much lack of awareness.
The study of ICT (information communication technology) acknowledge us that in Asian countries women with age more than fifteen are 40% which cannot afford or know how to use cellphone as compared of opposite gender. And the percentage for lack of information about internet is more shocking which is also nearly equal to 45 to 50%. This is hilarious news for Asian countries that in modern technology days their half of women doesn’t know how to use internet.
Lirne Asia CEO Helani Galpaya launched this report in Coulombo Sri Lanka. In report she said, “The more than one hundred and fifty million users mentioned by PTA (Pakistan telecommunication authority) on their website. While the bad news is it can’t show weather a user is men or women, poor or rich and that’s why enable us to judge or recognize the gender gap.”
While something which was positive for Pakistan was that more than fifty seven percent Pakistani at least own a mobile of any kind but lack of knowledge about internet is much concerning which is more than sixty seven percent doesn’t know how to use internet. Around twenty percent complained about its cost as well.
So in this Modern world Asian countries should take step to educate their people especially women.
