A collection of articles from around the world on women’s experiences of digital labour platforms

The rise of digital labour platforms has attracted the attention of the media, regulators, and academics. A vast amount of literature and commentary has been produced over the last few years. However, with some exceptions, there continues to be important knowledge gaps about the gender dynamics that exist in the platform economy and about women’s experiences of platform work across different economic and social realities. 

To help fill this gap Digital Future Society is publishing Global Perspectives on Women, Work and Digital Labour Platformscollection of 10 articles written by 26 gig economy experts.
