The paper takes into consideration the evolution of the concept and the results of the digital divide applied to gender issues. An overview on the data and anal-yses produced by the main international institutions, from the World Economic Forum, to the European Commission, to the OECD is provided, concerning both education and employment in sectors related to ICT (Information and Communi-cation Technologies). These analyses show that the digital gender divide is still consistent, and it is linked and generated by a concomitant series of factors that determine the disparities of access, use, inclusion and representation, such as digi-tal literacy, geographical contexts, socio-economic contexts and the lack of poli-cies to promote gender equality.
Keywords: Digital society, digital divide, gender, gender inequalities.
