EMAGAZINE: Women Weave the Web                           APRIL 2014
Today is International Girls in ICT Day—a perfect day to celebrate the extraordinary image emerging from our ongoing Women Weave the Web Campaign, where we're crowdsourcing solutions and testimonies from women about digital inclusion in their communities. From students sneaking onto their brothers' computers to mothers logging on to advocate for peace in Crimea, women are claiming the digital tools they need to create a better world and to ensure that the next generation of girls will have a louder voice and a seat at the table.
