Abstract

E- Governance (Electronic Governance) in recent years has been a strategic issue over the world. It includes reshaping public administration process of a country mostly at policy making level to make the traditional governance system more transparent, accountable to the people, efficient and service- oriented. Like other developing countries, Bangladesh is also stepping ahead to achieve E-Governance through increasing usage of Information and communication technologies (ICTs).  With this increasing usage of Information Communication Technology (ICT), a new pattern of domination has been produced, where women are concentrated in the lower level of hierarchy. As usage of ICT by both women and men ensures development of E- Governance and women constitute nearly the half of the total population of Bangladesh, objectives of this research are to identify the potentials of women’s involvement in ICT usage for achieving E-Governance. It also looks at the constraints of women’s involvement in ICT in Bangladesh though the ICT tools usage is increasing sharply. This research has focused on the ways of supporting women in ICT and influence of this effort in achieving true E- Governance in Bangladesh. Government initiatives for making ICT facilities available at grass root levels and vast campaigning for learning usage of ICT, recruitment of women in ICT related jobs and arranging trainings may increase women involvement in ICTs which is obviously a step toward achieving E- Governance. In this study, supporting women in ICT refers to encouraging women for proper usage of information and Communication technology.
