Take a look at the state of web access for women in developing nations: http://www.onlineclasses.org/2013/02/18/women-and-the-web.
I hope this quote from the link above will caputre your interest:
“…when women are able to gain access to the Internet, they begin to do powerful things with it. Among women in developing nations, many of those who have been able to access the web have used it to find work, do research, and otherwise seek an additional income source for their families.”
Another example of small steps that create profound change!
