It has often been said that technology is a great equalizer, offering an equal playing field by eliminating bias.
However, the world of technology has been very masculine.
That is expected to change rapidly with the launch of the next generation of the Internet, Web3 or Metaverse.
It is believed that Metaverse will democratize the Internet to an unprecedented degree. The creators are also expected to drive the Metaverse, for example, the gaming industry.
As a result, more women today are equipping themselves to change the game and challenge men’s dominance in the tech industry.
Here are the five women who became the face of the Metaverse:
