Abstract

The paper makes an attempt to study if gender has a role in the use of Information and Communication Technology (ICT), since it is strongly held by various studies that the social and cultural factors impede a woman's preference to scientific and technical subjects. With this background, the paper analyses to see if cultural, family and educational background can change this generalized notion.
