Tanzania (2018)

On almost every measure of development rural women fare worse than rural men or urban women. Nearly one of every three women in the world — or 1.1 billion — is excluded from the formal financial system. And, the benefits of internet and technology are accessible to men at a much higher rate than women. Women are marginalized and being left behind in progress because of these and other factors, things that most of us take for granted in our lives.
