Dear Akriti and all

Did you ever get a response to this?

Has anyone done thinks kind of work in the DNS sector? I am asking for
the purpose of the Internet Governance Forum's Best Practice Forum on
Gender and Access which is, this year, focusing on women and LGBTQI
persons' participation in the digital economy. And the DNS industry is a
pretty important part of the digital economy.

If anyone has any knowledge of news items, case studies, analyses on
gender and the DNS sector, please pass them my way.
