The Cinema and Television industry is always dominated by men. Since the technology involved in making movie was complicated and requires hard physical skill men were dominated in the industry. So even the characterizations of women is projected through men perception only. This scenario is still being seen in movies ever since Lumiere Brother invented Camera. Developments in Information and Communication Technology is slowly changing this by opening up the opportune for women from production to exhibition through websites such as “VIMEO”, “DAILYMOTION”, “TWITCH”, “LIVELEAK”, “VEOH”, “BREAK”, “METACAFE”, and the most used “YOUTUBE”. This paper would speak about the changes in film making technology in which it has expanded opportunity for women to work in. How ICT has has changed the technology of film making paving way for women to contribute more in this men dominated media. The digital media has encouraged participation of women in all stages of film making.
