Happy International Girls in ICT Day 2022: The Growing Importance of Women in Tech in Nepal

Technology is a tool that allows a person to walk in step with the rest of the world. Technology is more than simply knowing how to use computers; it is also about understanding how to use information sources to educate, learn, and be aware of oneself in order to keep up with the rest of the world.


International Girls in ICT Day is observed on April 28 every year to encourage equitable involvement in ICT technologies. Let's take a look at the path of Nepalese girls learning to use technology this year, and why this day is more essential than ever. Girls in Nepal have been exposed to school more lately than boys due to the patriarchal society. There were a variety of reasons for this, including financial constraints and the belief that girls belong in the house. With time, however, things changed, and society saw the significance of educating both faiths.

Everyone has had a rough time in the previous two years. With employment, school, and everything coming online, the COVID-19 epidemic forced everyone behind locked walls. People realized the potential of technology more than ever before during this period.

While women are still underrepresented in school and the workplace in many sections of the country, the scenario of metropolitan centers offers as an example. Girls, on the other hand, have yet to be granted access to technology. Many popular ideas hold that exposing a girl to cell phones and laptops would cause her to become rebellious and overly self-reliant.

During this time, even women realized how critical it is to have internet access and knowledge. Women were significantly behind males in terms of obtaining health and job information prior to the invention of mobile phones. They realized the necessity of having a secondary source of income, such as an internet company, as a result of the financial crisis.


According to ITU data, more than 3, 62,000 girls and young women have participated in more than 11,000 festivities in 171 countries throughout the world in honor of International Girls in ICT Day since 2011.

According to the International Telecommunication Union, this is more important than ever during the COVID-19 pandemic because giving women and girls access to the internet allows them to "start new businesses, sell products to new markets, find better paid jobs, and access education, health, and financial services."
