In the US, women outnumbered men on-line, according to the results of a survey carried out in 2001 which summarized that "the gender breakdown of the US Internet audience is an exact mirror of the breakdown of the general population for the first time".
The survey finds that 51.7% of active US Internet users are women, and the number of female web-surfers is growing faster than the overall Internet population. In some EU countries, women count for nearly half the population of Internet users, although in Eastern European countries the situation is worse. In Poland women make up 18.7% of Internet users, 34% in the Czech Republic, 38% in Russia and 47% in Hungary. For comparison purposes, women represent 22% of all Internet users in Asia, 38% of those in Latin America and 6% of Middle Eastern users.
