Another presentation including a statistical study on how many “women” inventors are listed globally.
Apparently, less than one third of PCT patent applications list a women inventor. Shock!
So what? It feels so sexist to focus on this metric.
Well, maybe they use the data to support some argument that women are not being given equal access to resources or something. At best it’s a curious evidence that can be used to support tangential women’s rights arguments.
As a metric in itself it means little. Maybe all the women are using trade secrets.
