Every year, girls and young women miss out on US$ 15 billion in economic opportunities because of the gender digital gap. This gap - both in digital literacy and in access to the internet - holds girls back from their learning and employment potential.

This factsheet contains jarring statistics and proves the need to end the exclusion of girls and women from the global digital economy. With the right skills and opportunities, today's largest cohort of adolescent girls can become the largest generation of game changers in history. Join UNICEF's mission toward opportunity for every girl.
