Huge Gender Inequality In Online India

71% of people online in India are males

India's male population is leading the way in the country's social media burst, whilst its women fall behind. Unlike most nations, where women usually dominate social media usage, 76% of Indian Facebook users are male and only 24% are female. This inequality continues across many digital platforms, with only 29% of internet users in India being women and the other 71% being men; a gap which is expected to shrink to a 40/60 ratio in the next five years. The study said of the gender gap that it “highlighted how women are often a target of online abuse” in India, as they are “often treated as trespassers in a male space”.
