This Week’s Policy Focus 🔎
Overcoming the Gender Gap in Digital Connectivity
Ankit Anand writes: In these times of a waning pandemic, women were the largest common group facing challenges - whether it was to run their households, educate their children or find resources to take care of the infected. As such, the pandemic brought to the fore the Gender Gap in access to digital connectivity faced by nearly half the population on this planet and in our country.

You won’t believe it, but it’s cheaper than a cup of coffee to support our work☕
We're an entirely community-funded platform with a singular goal in mind - to bring fresh policy insights to our readers, create career opportunities, and help thousands more build thriving careers in the policy space in India.
For it to happen without anyone having to pay for it and for all of our work to remain freely accessible, do consider buying us a coffee (or two!). Contribute as little as Rs. 75 and help us sustain our work and grow it in the times to come. Thank you :)
