Gender Relations and Adoption of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) in Uganda is a book about the effect on gender relations of adoption of information and communication technologies and vice versa. Utilising feminist, development and diffusion of innovations theory, the book shows that power relations, agency and patriarchy mediate the means of technology adoption. The book unravels an intricate connection between especially mobile phone adoption and violence against women using case study material from two districts in Uganda. It ends with far reaching policy recommendations for ensuring that technology addresses women''s and men''s needs.
