Resumen:

Big Data, Big Impact? Towards Gender-Sensitive Data Systems summarizes the findings and potential policy implications of the Big Data for Gender pilot projects funded by Data2X, and lays out five cross-cutting messages that emerge from this body of work:

  • Big data offers unique insights on women and girls.
  • Gender-sensitive big data is ready to scale and integrate with traditional data.
  • Identify and correct bias in big datasets.
  • Protect the privacy of women and girls.
  • Women and girls must be central to data governance.

This report argues that the time for pilot projects has passed. Data privacy concerns must be addressed; investment in scale up is needed. Big data offers great potential for women and girls, and indeed for all people.
