Describing how women in rural areas are now coming forward to adopt technology to reach to the outer world, Ms Sitharaman, said, “When I proposed to build a community hall for women at these places, one woman asked me whether it will have computers as well. The woman told me that she wanted her daughter to help her through the computers and internet and not her son, who was working in the city. This, however, is just one of the several examples, how women from rural areas are keen on adopting technology to grow their business”.
