Francophone Women's Groups in Minority Situations and ICTs

“Francophone women are less likely to use the internet than Anglophone
women (40.4% compared with 55.3%, respectively)" says a survey report
released lately on the Womyn's Voices website. In the spring of 2002, 50
women’s groups working in minority situations in Canada were surveyed on
the use of information and communication technologies (ICTs). The
project's scope is limited, looking at Francophone women’s groups
working in minority situations. Also since statistics tend to change
rapidly, especially concerning ICTs, the data presented may not be an
accurate account of today's reality. It remains a valuable assessment
for APC, not only for better understanding its current projects and
members in francophone Africa and Canada, but also in preparing its new
website in French.
