English abstract

Latin America does not research on the problems of digital divide related to gender. This was one of the findings in the research made at Universidade Estadual Paulista, which included the most cited literature in English, Spanish and Portuguese in the domain of the digital divide. Women's lack of access to digital information technology or their inability to benefit from it, due to their gender, define a type of exclusion that is being studied in developed countries, but Latin America is neglected. To contribute to the development of gender research in librarian and information sciences, this study compiled the most relevant works about gender digital exclusion, identifying the main problems they refer to, articulating them in a conceptual map that allows to perceive the challenges and opportunities of research that they imply to the region. The target is to break academic silence in librarian and information sciences, and spread out what we know about gender digital exclusion, articulating it comprehensively to boost new projects, valuing female exclusion in science and technology, and specifically in information and communication technology, as a central problem of the research agenda of librarian and information sciences, of all Social Sciences, and of Latin American education and research institutions.

América Latina não pesquisa sobre os problemas de Exclusão Digital ligados ao gênero. Esse foi um dos achados da pesquisa feita na Universidade Estadual Paulista, que incluiu a literatura mais citada em inglês, espanhol e português sobre o domínio da Exclusão Digital. A falta de acesso das mulheres à tecnologia da informação digital ou a sua impossibilidade para se beneficiar dela, por conta do seu gênero, definem um tipo de exclusão digital que está sendo estudada em países desenvolvidos. No entanto, na América Latina a área está negligenciada. Para contribuir com o desenvolvimento da pesquisa de gênero na Ciência da Informação, este estudo compilou alguns dos trabalhos mais importantes sobre à Exclusão Digital de Gênero, identificando as problemáticas básicas estudadas, para articulálas em um mapa conceitual que permita perceber os desafios e as oportunidades de pesquisa que elas implicam para a região. O objetivo é quebrar o silêncio acadêmico da Ciência da Informação neste assunto, e difundir os fundamentos do que sabemos sobre a Exclusão Digital de Gênero, articulando-os de forma compreensiva para impulsionar novos projetos, denunciando a exclusão feminina na ciência e a tecnologia, e focando na apropriação da tecnologia de informação e comunicação, como um problema central da agenda de pesquisa da Ciência da Informação, das ciências sociais em geral, e das instituições de ensino e pesquisa Latino-americanas.
