  3. 3. World Telecommunication and Information Society Day 2012 Cameroon « Women and Girls in ICTs » Impact du Web2.0 sur l’intégration socio économique et politique des femmes et jeunes filles"The question we have to ponder here is simply this: how does a society hope to transform itself if it shoots itself in the foot by squanderingmore than half of its capital investment? The truth of the matter is that societies that recognize the real and untapped socio-economic, cultural and political power of women thrive. Those that refuse to value and leverage womens talent, energies and unique perspectives remain developmental misfits. And I daresay that it is not difficult to demonstrate this with a growing body of evidence. Paul Kagame "
