According to the Global Gender Gap Index report 2022 released by the World Economic Forum (WEF), Pakistan is second worst on the global gender parityindex ranking 145 out of 146 countries. As per the GSMA,the global industry association of mobile network operators, the country has some of the widest mobile gender gaps where 33% fewer women own mobile devices relative to men, whereas 38% fewer women use mobile internet as compared to their male counterparts.

“These are alarming statistics and by adopting a collective action approach we must act urgently. Without equal access to internet and technology, women are not able to participate in the digital society. Holding them back affects every aspect of their lives, including their ability to participate in the economy, speak out and campaign on issues that affect them,” He added. Jazz is dedicated to enhancing diversity and women’s empowerment within its business model and Jazz focuses on uplifting women in the society through the power of the internet. Female specific products and services are designed to help address many of the wider gender inequalities by digitally enabling them access to health, financial, and other life-enhancing services.
