The advance of information and communication technology has brought some changes to the society. Unfortunately, in Indonesia, it carries with its consequences, such as digital literacy. Based on the studies of the field, women’s involvement is lower compared to that of men. The divide in digital literacy is due to several factors; those are geographic factor, skills and education, government policy, as well as economic and cultural systems. The urgency has signified the need to empower Indonesian women in using technology through digital literacy.
