Abstract: This research explored the impact of technology on 18 Arab women in a student organization in a midwestern university. To measure technology’s impact on women, a content area related to women’s empowerment and gender equality was taught with and without the support of technology. The participants were divided into two groups: a control group, who were given handouts with lecture notes, and a treatment group, who were given a presentation with same content and a link of supporting to YouTube video. Both groups took a pre- and post-test to measure their knowledge about the content. The results of this research showed that there was significant difference between the two groups, t (16,2) = - 4.5, p< .05. The pre-test was not significantly different and suggests that the significant difference in the scores of both group was due to the teaching method used. The researcher recommends using technology as a method of empowering women with information that can benefit them.
