That is a tough one and at the risk of being accused of bias, improved access to telecommunications makes everyone’s life easier, particularly for the woman and so things that would have put us at risk previously you can now sit in the comfort of your home and do it if you have better data.

It helps improves relationships too, I keep using this example that i probably wont be married today if it hadn’t been for Skype. Because my husband doesn’t live here and I live here but thanks to the wonders of technology we were able to sustain a long distance relationship relatively painlessly,” she said.
