Girls and Technology: Dressember Day 10

Technology is  powerful tool. The UN Women, UNICEF and UN-Habitat launched an online website which also works as a smartphone app that brings together information on support services for women and girls who are survivors of violence.

This is a perfect example of self-empowerment through the utilization of mobile technology. It is also a great way to build a network of well-informed, tech-savvy, and empowered women, regardless of social class.
