In this presentation, I will look at women’s use of mobile communication in several locations around the world. They include women in vegetable markets in Abidjan, Cote d’Ivoire, female fishmongers in Myanmar, female North Korean Refugees in Seoul, South Korea, housewives in rural Elgeyo Marakwet, Kenya, Syrian refugees in the Netherlands, and female smugglers as well as “live-out” maids in Indonesia. I will look at the way that mobile communication plays into the lives of women in these diverse situations.
