Technology

Technological innovations have dramatically improved our lives. IWF analysts highlight how women uniquely benefit from new technologies and encourage policies that will lead to the development of the next wave of ground-breaking innovation. IWF objects to government's attempts to control technological progress, such as regulating the internet and internet providers, with the understanding that a free market will respond best to people's needs.
