Mobile Phones for Women: A New Approach for Social Welfare in the Developing World
A 2010 report by London-based telecom industry advocacy group GSMA (for Groupe Speciale Mobile Association) and the Cherie Blair Foundation for Women found a "mobile gender gap" in low- and middle-income countries: women are 21 percent less likely than men to own a mobile phone. The rate is highest in Asia, at 37 percent. Once they get phones women nearly uniformly report feeling safer, more connected and more independent.
I'm sure this is just an insidious plan to keep women enslaved and make tons of money from them. Businesses never do anything to help people.
