On 8th March International Women' Day 2012 Neelie Kroes, Vice President of the European Commission, and the woman in charge of digital policy for Europe, has written the following appeal:
The empowerment of women and the recent rise of digital technology have changed our world for the better.
Now it is time to bring these two revolutions together. You've heard of Moore's law, but what about a more women law?
Technology should not be a boy's and man's world. Our technology gurus and heroes cannot be limited to men.
It's a digital world now and the digital world is for everyone. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise.
