Looking Outwards-11

The article I read discusses the digital divide. The digital divide is the phenomenon of poorer people and areas having less access to functional computers, smart phones, or internet, all devices that are becoming more and more needed in the modern education and work worlds. This has been especially relevant during the Covid-19 pandemic, considering how many people were working or attending school from home, those without internet or an internet capable device were severely impacted. This article discusses an exhibition at a museum in Barcelona. The exhibition focuses not only on the digital divide, but also how it can disproportionately affect women and ethnic minorities. As the world continues to become more reliant on digital access, the worse the affects of the digital divide will become.
