dc.description.abstract Three decades of war have changed household and family structures, with an unprecedented increase in the number of female-headed households. Findings provide insight on the impact of state ICT policies and programmes regarding women’s engagement with new media. In terms of government policy, ICT’s need to be recognized as not only relevant to the economic sector, but also to democracy, development and social transformation. An information society policy framework would acknowledge that information gate-keeping is gendered at various levels; e-governance would mean improvement in access to and interactivity with government services, and a more citizen-centric government. en
