A Google initiative for women empowerment in India

  To empower women even further, Google India has launched an initiative called 'Helping women get online' that will encourage women in the country to use the online medium more effectively.

At present, only one third of users who use the Internet are women.Google realises that lack of easy access to Internet, lack of knowledge on how to use the Internet and its relevance in their daily lives are some of the biggest barriers for women to get online.

The initiative aims to help 50 million additional women get online by end of 2014 by undertaking a variety of initiatives across India.
