2. Be a surfer “girl”
Women are in the majority not only in most realms of higher education, but also in Internet use, comprising at least 52 percent of Internet users according to Nielsen/Net Ratings. Women are also more efficient in their Internet use; they spend less time surfing because they know what they’re looking for.
Women are already harnessing the vast amount of information that the Internet puts at their fingertips. In an age where the amount of information available to us by 2020 is expected to be 10 000 times what it is today, it’s hard to avoid the notion that knowledge is power and women are well positioned for the power afforded by their efficient use of the information superhighway.
The bottom line here is that women can stay on the cutting edge through continued dominance on the Internet and by taking advantage of online learning opportunities.
