Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) are for everyone and that does not mean for urban or rural communities. Recent developments in the fields of information and communication technology are indeed revolutionary in nature. By definition, Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) are a diverse set of technological tools and resources to create, disseminate, store, bring value-addition and manage information. Knowledge thereby becomes the fundamental resource for all economic and developmental activities in the knowledge society, of which women form an equal part. The process of synthesis of knowledge possessed across communities by men and women, with the global pool of knowledge and with the scope for further enrichment provides the genesis for knowledge networking.
