In this article, you will find information on the importance of incorporating a feminist approach into digital health. The authors disclose that while women frequently use digital health tools, women from marginalized areas, including those from low socioeconomic status or ethnic minorities, are often underrepresented.

Furthermore, you will find information and interesting discussions on the risks associated with digital health apps, such as privacy breaches and reinforcement of harmful gender stereotypes. This article also addresses the lack of gender parity in digital health leadership, which can lead to biased app designs and algorithms.

The authors propose solutions such as including diverse women in app design and testing, conducting intersectional gender analyses, and increasing the representation of minority women in leadership roles. The article also highlights the need for digital health to be viewed through an intersectional approach considering factors like race, socioeconomic status, geographical location, and, ultimately, gender.
