Abstract

This article is based on a research conducted in Thrace, a Greek region in the North, bordering Turkey and Bulgaria. It aims to describe the efforts women, belonging to socially excluded communities i.e. Muslim women, Pontian women immigrants from the former Soviet Union and Roma women, make to adapt to the demands of today's world and to detect whether these women have access to and use of ICTs.
