Abstract in another language

Leaving no one behind is a fundamental principle for achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) 2030. In accordance with SDG 5 “Gender Equality”, which aims to achieve gender equality and empowerment of all women and girls, this research focusses on the inclusion of women in develop-ment efforts. Specifically, we research the relationship between Information and Communication Tech-nology (ICT) and women’s empowerment. Two sequential studies are conducted. Study 1 outlines the key aspects of women’s empowerment influenced by ICT via a structured literature review and the use of Amartya Sen’s Capability Approach. Study 2 delineates the dynamics and future research potential of these initial findings by integrating them into a co-word analysis. Results outline the topic of ICT and women’s empowerment as a relatively new field of research, which includes investigations of the rela-tionship between ICT and “life and physical health” at its strategic heart. In addition, results outline the relationship of ICT with women’s capabilities of “social relations”, “education and knowledge”, “paid work and other projects”, and “bodily integrity and safety” to be potentially promising for further research
