This webinar seeks to provide a much-needed feminist perspective on how the Fourth Industrial Revolution is impacting the present and future of women's work in Asian economies.
In specific, the webinar will focus on the gender digital divide and implications of platformisation and automation of value chains on women's work and livelihoods in Asia as well as future priorities for feminist recommendations in the region.
