ITU Resolution 70 (Rev. Busan, 2014) "Mainstreaming a gender perspective in ITU and promotion of gender equality and the empowerment of women through information and communication technologies" recognizes that
information and communication technologies (ICTs) are tools through which gender equality and women's empowerment can be advanced, and are integral to the creation of societies in which both women and men can substantively contribute and participate.
Resolution 70 highlights the role of ICTs to advance gender equality and women’s empowerment in many ways, notably by encouraging girls to choose a career in the field of ICTs, and by fostering the use of ICTs for the social and economic empowerment of women and girls. It encourages Member States and Sector Members to review their policies related to the information society to ensure the inclusion of a gender perspective in all activities.
