Africa: How Many African Women are Online?

Gamelmag would like to know how many African women are online: “Firstly, we need to be able to place a figure on the actual number of active female Internet users. Next, we should figure out the factors that inhibit women's use of the web and finally put in measures to reverse this trend.”

    Most african women who are active users of the internet are probably the educated ones who were exposed to the use of the internet. Thus, one should be asking how many educated african women have been exposed to the use of the internet.
