Why are so few women inventors named on patents?

October 3, 2019

A recent BBC article looks at why women inventors account for just under 13% of patent applications globally.  This stems from low numbers of females working in tech industries and female scientists being less than half as likely to obtain a patent for their research.  The good news is that numbers are rising, but will not reach parity in my life time or at least not until I am dribbling into my Weetbix in a rest home.  Apparently parity will not be reached until 2070!


My sister Emma is named on SEVEN patents.  Super proud to have my family bucking trends and leading the way.
