ICT and Social Media: Claiming Spaces for Women's Rights in Kuwait

Auther : Ali A. Dashti Salah Al Fadhli

Information and Communication Technology (ICT) and the social media play an important role in almost all areas of human life. ICT offers the potential to empower individuals, while social media provide the channels to enhance employer's activities. As they struggle to gain their rights, women are among the many groups who can benefit from using ICT and social media. Many scholars believe that ICT can be a positive factor in the process of women's empowerment and gain of equal rights. This study examines the impact of ICT and social media on fostering women's rights in Kuwait. Digital divide, awareness, and the role of social media are the factors that will be focused on. The research will examine the requirements for women's empowerment on Micro and Meso levels. The findings show little evidence that ICT has a positive impact in this direction, but more collective efforts are needed to remove negative attitudes toward women and eliminate the glass ceiling to help women be part of decision-making processes and promote more women's leadership.
Keywords: Information and Communication Technology, Women's Rights, Women's Empowerment, Massmedia, Kuwait, Social media.
