Although women account for nearly half of the global population, gender gaps seem to be everywhere, including in internet usage. Statistics show that there were 259 million more men than women using the internet in 2022.
In China, female users registered rapid growth in fields such as e-commerce, online banking, online payment, map navigation, local life and short video.
It is noteworthy that more female talents are appearing in some traditionally male-dominated occupations such as internet technology and R&D.
The development of the digital economy can help guarantee women's employment rights and realize self-fulfillment; narrow the gender gap between developed and undeveloped regions, cities and rural areas; and help more women obtain deserved development opportunities.
How about Chinese women on the internet road? Let's take a look.
