A Study on Gender Diversity in Technology Industry and Employment of Women in Afghanistan
The right of employment had been declared universally but, is it possible to apply it equally for both men and women? Inequality between men and women has existed and it still exists in almost all aspects of living. In tech industries, this gap is significant. Women have had a noticeable influence in technology since the beginning, yet their numbers and recognition are small globally. This study presents gender inequality levels and unemployment of women in tech companies and organizations in Afghanistan and reviews the impact of women in technology. The method used in this research study is quantitative. Data is secondary and has been gathered from varied sources such as government of Afghanistan publications, Human Rights International Research Journal, etc. Trends observed during the past decade are discussed in the paper.
