Gender Report Card update for Phillipines
APC announced the publication of a member organisation’s digital gender report card on the Philippines’ progress in addressing the digital gender divide, from Foundation for Media Alternatives (FMA). Similar Gender Report Cards for ten countries are discussed in the Web Foundation 2016 Internet Access and Women’s Empowerment overview. These reports not only analyse current indicators, but highlight progress as good practices for emulation by other countries, and serve as a call to action for further improvement by governments, international organisations, and other organisations and individuals. UN Sustainable Development Goal 17 commits governments to making this kind of gender-disaggregated data available to support monitoring and progress on gender issues, while reports like this put the information into perspective.
