In a developing nation such as India, ICTs (Information and Communication Technologies) are emerging as an effective instrument for women's empowerment. New possibilities for information sharing and knowledge acquisition for both men and women have been made possible by the development of ICTs. The ICT revolution has created challenges and issues in addition to new opportunities for economic and social progress. All facets of society are being affected by its ability to shape and enhance a broad variety of developmental apps in the agricultural, industrial, and social sectors. The growth of people is given special chances through ICT. ICT was expanding inequalities between nations, regions, gender, rich-poor, and elite disregarded also among the several categories of females in different realms of activity. Simultaneously, ICT was enlarging gaps between and within rural-urban, rich-poor, and gender. Building up the skills of women is essential if they are to be included in productive endeavors, institutional development, family and social change, political representation, decision-making, trade & commerce, entrepreneurship development, and social leadership. There is a need to increase the odds of women owning, running, and controlling enterprises in all industries, especially service-based IT firms. Additionally, there is a requirement to expand their employment opportunities in e-related fields, rather than limiting them to call centers, telecentres, data entry-level jobs, and lower levels in organizations, and to higher managerial and technical positions in government & non-government organizations, research, and educational institutions. ICT must address all of these issues affecting women as a whole and be utilized to help create a society where women are empowered.
