WCC Steps to Success Series: Challenging Social Norms and Cultural Perceptions (May 13th, 2021)
Date published: May 28, 2021
In many poor or rural communities, access to technology and the internet by women is often seen as immoral, inappropriate, or unnecessary. It is important to work on perceptions with those frequently in power, such as men, community and religious leaders, and elders. Tackling these existing social and cultural norms will help women gain access to information and opportunities, build confidence, and feel empowered.
