theme talks about how technology and education in the digital age can help the empowerment of women and girls across the world. I believe technology is the greatest tool for progress in today's era if used properly and through it women should learn to be safer, stronger more empowered because they can see the world on their finger tips today. This abundant knowledge that exists online is incredible. We never had that earlier. So if they really consume the right content and absorb and practice that, bring it into their daily interaction they can achieve anything and can never be taken for granted. Right Knowledge is the true power and thatswhy i said if internet is “used correctly and consciously “. Today is better than yesterday and I’m positive that tomorrow is a better than ever . when all women feel comfortable and safe in being themself, i wish for a time when we read the news and find no more crimes because all of us are healed and happy.”
