Abstract
The purpose of this study is to explore the current use and access of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) situation amongst rural women in Kenya, and suggest mitigating solutions. Using survey research, rural women aged 16-60 were sampled. In total, 200 respondents formed the sampling size, randomly selected from Census household data in Kenya. Besides the marked correlation between the respondents’ level of education, type of ICTs accessed and information needs and purposes, it was observed that ICTs alone are insufficient for significant benefits to emerge.
