The text deals with the matter of digitalisation and the right to education in the developing world and the potential effects for girls and young women specifically. By examining the influence that new digital technologies have had in the sector of education as well as how they might be implemented in areas where they are at present time not as widely available, the text provides insights into the many layers and aspects that need to be considered within an educational system. Advantages for girls can be achieved if their specific, often disadvantaged, situation is taken into account and changes are made in such a way that does not perpetuate existing inequalities and is mindful of challenges presented by digitalisation.
