A Global Generation
Young women today are growing up in multi-cultural families, traveling the world, and coping with having their families and friends scattered all over the world. Technology, trade, and travel connect us across national borders more than ever before possible. The gender gap in Internet use is quickly disappearing. In Thailand for example, women comprised 35 percent of users in 1999, compared with 49 percent in 2000.

Yee-Ming Tan from Malaysia writes: “I’m in constant contact via the telephone, the Internet, and email with my sister in Paris, my friend in New York, and my mom in Malaysia. We are connected emotionally and spiritually but not physically anymore.” How does this affect our lives and identities?
